The 49ers are hoping Smith will be able to play through the injury in the playoffs. I don’t believe they would risk him this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals.
What do you think the 49ers chances in the playoffs are without Justin Smith?
Update: Justin Smith has a partially torn triceps tendon, not muscle, according to Matt Maiocco. There is a bone spur in Smith’s left elbow which has caused the tear. The 49ers hope Smith can regain strength in his left arm for the playoffs.
