*Slightly concerning news as both Brody Eldridge and Eric Foster were inactive in practice today due to new injuries.  Had they been listed yesterday as full participants with the injury and then were out today, rest could be a possibility, but with the addition of both, it indicates an injury during or before practice.  This of course, raises concerns about their availability for Sunday’s game.

*  On a positive note, both Robert Mathis and Kavell Conner were upgraded to limited practice today making their starts on Sunday more likely.  Also good news is that DE Tyler Brayton was a full participant with his knee injury while Freeney and Wayne were both back on the field following their day off to rest.

*  Blair White is slightly concerning as indications today from Coach Caldwell were that he was trending in the right direction.  Whether White suffered a setback during practice, or whether he was simply being rested today is unclear, but at this point, White’s availability for Sunday’s game is in serious doubt.

*  On the other side of the coin, Anthony Gonzalez was a full participant for the third practice in a row, and is almost certain to return to the field.  He joked earlier today about his availability stating that he plans to be back on the field on Sunday, but doesn’t want to jinx it.
