SANTA CLARA – Pro Bowl outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks missed practice Thursday due to an undisclosed illness.

Brooks, a second-team All-Pro selection, had a big game in the 49ers’ 23-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs. He is expected to return to practice Thursday and be available for the 49ers' game Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks for the NFC Championship.

Cornerback Carlos Rogers and fullback Will Tukuafu were limited during practice Wednesday. Rogers practiced for the first time since sustaining a hamstring strain in the 49ers’ regular-season finale at Arizona. Tukuafu sustained a left knee sprain early in Sunday's game against Carolina.
