05:58 PM ET 01.16 | Justin Smith is back in action for the San Francisco 49ers, but he's rolling the dice every time he steps on the field. The behemoth defensive lineman played through the pain of his partially torn left triceps in Saturday night's 45-31 victory over the Green Bay Packers. The lumbering brace on his left arm provides support, but it can't protect Smith from the risk of another major setback after initially suffering the injury in Week 15. "It's like anything, if it's half-torn or whatever, it could tear the rest of the way," Smith told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area on Wednesday. "I'm not really concerned about it. Just going to go out there and do the best I can and see what happens."

Niners need him in order to free up other players rushing the QB.

Even with half an arm, he'll tear through the Falcons line.
49ers win by 14+.
