49ers' Carlos Rogers adamant to play on Sunday

The San Francisco 49ers are storming into the playoffs, and if Carlos Rogers has his way, he will be on that field with them. The six-foot cornerback is adamant he will play on Sunday afternoon against the Green Bay Packers. Responding to a report that he won't play in San Francisco's wild-card showdown with the Packers on Sunday because of a hamstring injury, the 49ers cornerback refused to rule himself out.
 "It’s all right. It ain’t bad," he said, "We’re taking it day by day.”
Rogers is battling his first hamstring injury of his nine year tenure, even having an MRI on Monday.  He has not missed a game in three straight seasons, and leads 49ers defenders with 1,068 snaps from scrimmage. 32 year old Rogers has a combined 47 tackles with two interceptions this year.  He suffered the right hamstring injury in the closing minutes of last week's 23-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh said he didn't yet know whether Rogers would play. 
“We’re always hopeful,” Harbaugh said. “He’s a little sore. These guys heal faster than the normal human being.”
Rogers isn't about to miss this weekend's rematch of last January’s divisional-round playoff game won 45-31 by the NFC champion 49ers.
“Oh, no,” Rogers said, “Hell no."
The San Francisco 49ers (12-4) take on the Green Bay Packers (8-7-1) on Sunday at 4:40 pm, at Lambeau Field in Green Bay Wisconsin.
