Week 4: Wednesday Injury Report

7 players sat today. Two with previously unknown injuries. Keyunta Dawson missed practice with a foot injury and Chad Simpson sat out with an injury to his abdomen. The other 5 are known or likely to be out for Sunday. Anthony Gonzalez (knee), Dwight Freeney (quad), Bob Sanders (knee), Gary Brackett (knee) and Kelvin Hayden (hamstring) sat out today.

On the bright side Jerraud Powers' groin soreness wasn't an issue today after costing him a game and some practice time earlier in the year.

Oesher has injury quotes from Hayden, Caldwell and Freeney. Hayden all but rules himself out for Sunday, but hopes it will be the last game he'll need to miss with the lingering hamstring issue. Freeney (as previously reported) refuses to rule himself out for Sunday and sets no timetable in accordance with his attitude towards injury recovery;

 ‘Tomorrow I’ll be ready. If it’s not tomorrow, it’s going to be the next day.’ That’s how I’m going to take it. . . . The intensity you have to be into the game has to be twice as much as practice, so I’m going to take it day by day. I’m going to wake up every morning thinking I’m ready. If I get out of bed and I’m not feeling it, then I have another day to do."

Caldwell continues to refer to Gary Brackett's situation as "day to day" and says Sanders and Gonzalez are making progress.

In addition Phil B reports that Eric Foster will be rotating in at defensive end this week, Tom Santi cleared waivers and was added to the practice squad, Kyle DeVan will continue to rotate in at RG and that Phillip Wheeler is in the mix at DE (but Phil doesn't expect to see him unless the DE cupboard is truly bare).
