Week 1: Thursday Injury Report, News

Two new names on the injury report today. Fili Moala sat out today after practicing fully yesterday (knee) and Tim Jennings continues to get a day off to rest each week. Bob Sanders (knee), Jamie Silva (abdomen) and Tom Santi (ankle) sat out a second day of practice. link


Over on the Jags side. Backup tackle Tra Thomas returned to practice, TE Zach Miller (the lesser) sat out again and 2nd string (backup to rookie starter Terrance Knighton) DT Derek Landri was added to the report after being limited by a knee injury. link


In the news, Oesher reports that Coach Caldwell called Jerraud Powers starting Sunday's at CB opposite Kelvin Hayden "likely". Marlin Jackson will play the nickel with Tim Jennings likely relegated to the dime package.

Bill Polian on NFL Network (via 18to88) says that Sanders has been cleared by Dr. James Andrews, but must reach conditioning and practice time benchmarks before he will be allowed to play on the surgically repaired knee. Polian calls Sanders' progress "rapid".

Finally, in case you didn't see the announcement at the top right of every SB Nation blog, the network has launched a new mainpage with news, scores and analysis from bloggers within and (formerly) outside of SB Nation with sub-pages with all the previously mentioned features for each major sport. Looks very cool.

[Update] Phil B (via commenter Cass) relays the clearest injury status answer ever given by the Colts. Jamie Silva will not play Sunday. Leaving only the newly signed (and widely panned for poor cover skills by Cards fans) Aaron Francisco backing up Antoine Bethea and Melvin Bullitt.
