Corey Liuget, Jared Gaither and Antwan Barnes are not practicing and are taking “mental reps” today. Gaither seems to have taken a ton of mental reps this season. That really doesn’t help out with his conditioning. Gaither has gotten worn down in the 4th quarter of games and needs practices to help with his stamina, but he seems to enjoy taking those “mental reps.”
Barnes will be unlikely to play against the Bucs this weekend. If Gaither has to sit on Sunday, get ready for Mike Harris again at left tackle and get ready for Philip Rivers to be antsy in the pocket again.
