If there is an area of the San Francisco 49ers roster that is a bit light on talent, it would be at the cornerback position. While the secondary was still solid in 2011, the team will not be able to withstand injuries to the unit if they hope to compete for a Super Bowl in the fall.
The 49ers had some good news come their way on Tuesday as cornerback Carlos Rogers went through practice and felt fine. Rogers' calf had been bothering him for months, but it appears he is finally healthy.

This can only mean good things for the Niners, especially with training camp right around the corner. This defense has a chance to be elite in 2012, but they'll need to stay healthy and on the field if they hope to do so. Rogers is a key member of the secondary and the team does not have a ton of depth at the cornerback spot, so you would have to think the training staff will take every precaution with him moving forward.
