Mario ManninghamOver the course of a 16-game regular season and three weeks of the playoffs, players are bound to get hurt. Injuries have kept some of the best players on teams out of the Super Bowl in the past, and here at Bankroll Sports, we are going to be keeping up to date the Superbowl 47 injury report to keep you abreast of the most important Super Bowl injury news and notes leading up to the big game.

The Baltimore Ravens had oodles have injuries over the course of the regular season to deal with this year. They were without LB Ray Lewis for the better part of three months, they had to deal with problems to men like S Bernard Pollard (three games), LB Dannell Ellerbe (three games), LB Jameel McClain (three games), DT Haloti Ngata (one game), DB LaDarius Webb (10 games plus the playoffs), and DE Terrell Suggs (8 games). However, at this point, the team is as healthy as it has been all season long, and it is going to be flying high into the Super Bowl on February 3rd.

The injuries that we have to discuss are all ones that have been around for quite some time. We’ve already mentioned that Webb is on IR with a torn ACL that has cost him over half the season. McClain is out for the year with a neck injury as well, though he was never put on IR. Aside from that though, at least as of the start of the week, there really is nothing to worry about from the standpoint of the Ravens.

The 49ers have a ton of men that are listed as probable early on in the week on the injury report, but we aren’t even going to bother for anyone that we didn’t see with a real problem in the NFC Championship Game. We are mildly concerned over a shoulder injury that LB Aldon Smith has. He has been practicing very little over the course of the last couple of weeks, and perhaps that’s the reason that he doesn’t have a single sack in the last month and a half. We’ll definitely monitor this one, though we don’t see any way that Smith doesn’t give it a go for the full 60 minutes on February 3rd.

Again, relatively speaking, this has been a pretty darn healthy team, especially knowing that this is the end of the season. RB Brandon Jacobs proved to be useless to the Niners, and he has been suspended for the rest of the year and won’t travel with the team to the Bayou. WR Kyle Williams, the goat of last year’s NFC Championship Game is finished for the campaign with a knee injury. WR Mario Manningham is probably the most notable man on IR for the year for the 49ers, as he tore up his knee, leaving the team without a truly viable second option opposite of WR Michael Crabtree. And finally, RB Kendall Hunter has been done for the campaign since November with a torn Achilles tendon.

We’ll also keep an eye on the legal situation with Crabtree, who has gotten into a run-in with the law in recent days. However, he played in the NFC Championship Game, and we don’t figure there to be an issue with him playing in New Orleans either.
