The final injury report of the season has been released and we aren’t going to be spending much time Sunday wondering if an injured player is able to make it onto the field.

Neither the Ravens nor the 49ers have a player listed as anything but probable heading into Super Bowl XLVII. While there are surely players on both sides dealing with injuries keeping them from being at full speed, it’s nice to know that the deciding game of the season won’t be missing any of the expected parts.

For the Ravens, 14 players are listed as probable and all of them were full participants in Friday’s practice. Plenty of the expected names -- Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Haloti Ngata -- pop up on that list, but they will all be in uniform come Sunday.

49ers linebackers Ahmad Brooks and Aldon Smith were both limited in practice on Friday thanks to shoulder injuries. Both players are limited all week, but there was never even a slight indication that either player was at risk of missing the game and that didn’t change with the release of the injury report. Eleven other Niners are probable and it seems safe to say that you can shift any player of value to definite.
