Breer: For Reid, less is more
Here's the rest of Friday's injury news:
- In Green Bay, Packers coach Mike McCarthy announced that rookie running back Eddie Lacy (ankle) looked good in Friday's practice and is probable for Sunday's game at frigid Lambeau Field. Packers receiver James Jones says the 49ers will see a "totally different" player after Lacy rushed for just 41 yards on 14 carries back in Week 1.
- 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers (hamstring) was on the field for Friday's practice without his jersey or helmet. He promised all week he'd be ready for Sunday, but told reporters after Friday's session: "I ran on it, but I don't know." Fellow cornerback Eric Wright also tweaked his hamstring in Thursday's session, but suited up Friday, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Wright was "moving all right," Comcast SportsNet Bay Area's Matt Maiocco noted.

- The Bengals announced that cornerback Terence Newman is doubtful with a knee injury for Sunday's playoff tilt with the San Diego Chargers. A laundry list of Cincy players are questionable, including defensive end Wallace Gilberry (concussion) and tight ends Tyler Eifert (neck) and Jermaine Gresham (hamstring), who both practiced fully Friday.
