S – Al Afalava: INACTIVE – Afalava has not been able to practice for two straight weeks, and despite being listed as “Questionable,” never really had a chance of playing.
DE – Eric Foster: ACTIVE - Foster was able to practice all week and will play this week.
RB – Mike Hart: INACTIVE – Hart will not return to the field after practicing all week, but the reason does not seem to be injury related.
CB – Kelvin Hayden: INACTIVE - Hayden could not practice this week and will not play once again allowing young CBs Lacey and Tryon gain more valuable starting experience.
RB – Javarris James: INACTIVE – James will be inactive as per a coach’s decision.
OT – Charlie Johnson: ACTIVE – Johnson will start once again at LT.
OG – Jacques McClendon: INACTIVE – McClendon will not play as per a coach’s decision.
DT – Dan Muir: INACTIVE – Muir will not play as he was unable to return to a sufficient degree of health to play.
C – Jeff Saturday: ACTIVE – Saturday suffered a mild tweak during practice, but will be the starting center as he has been for years. If the injury flairs up expect Jamey Richard to be the backup.
