CHARLOTTE — This is the live blog for the pregame of the 49ers’ divisional playoff game against the Panthers. I’ll update this frequently with information and analysis from the press box.
8:34 Carlos Rogers is inactive again for the 49ers. Tramaine Brock will start at left cornerback. The 49ers other inactives are Derek Carrier, Nick Moody, Ryan Seymour, Quinton Dial, Joe Looney and Jonathan Baldwin.
8:35 Jonathan Stewart is inactive with a knee injury. The Panthers other inactives are Tavarres King, Marvin McNutt, Josh Norman, Dan Connor, Travis Bond and Wes Horton.
9:36 Steve Smith looks quick and spry in warmups.
9:46 Greg Roman and Jim Tomsula interviewed for the Vikings’ head coaching vacancy yesterday. It will be interesting to see if that has an effect on this game.
