There has been an Eddie Royal sighting! He has made it out onto the practice field and is catching passes and fielding punts. Maybe we will get our first look at him on the field this Friday against the Minnesota Vikings.
Jared Gaither was back on the rehab field today. Mark that down as 2 straight days that he has worked. He is slowly working his way back.
Joining him on the rehab field were Curtis Brinkley, Garrett Brown, Antonio Garay, Marcus Gilchrist, Ryan Mathews, Dante Rosario, Johnnie Troutman and Demorrio Williams.
On the other side of the injury list, Tyronne Green and Nick Hardwick did not participate in practice. We have the potential of missing 3 of our starters on the offensive line against Jared Allen and the Vikings. Two of those starters would be rookies, David Molk and Mike Harris. Sounds like it could get ugly.
Robert Meachem also missed practice, but the reasons were not disclosed.
