As expected, Panthers WR Steve Smith is active Sunday.

Smith gave himself an 89-percent chance earlier in the week, no doubt a bit of "clever" gamesmanship from the veteran chatterbox. The 49ers ranked 11th in the league against No. 1 wideouts, allowing an average of 75.2 yards per game to them, but with Carlos Rodgers inactive, things could change a bit. Perrish Cox will fill in for Rodgers and the 49ers could work out of the nickel-package mostly, just like last week, so Smith should still see a lot of defensive attention.
