I haven’t had a chance to watch the preseason game from Saturday yet, but I plan on getting the DVR running later tonight so I can discuss what was by most accounts an underwhelming performance. Until then, I thought I would give the injury update from the game.
Jerome Murphy and Brandon McRae will both be out this week after suffering lateral ankle sprains. Craig Dahl (mild ankle sprain), Dominic Douglas (sublexed shoulder), and Kevin Dockery (R hip pointer) are day to day, but they should be able to get back on the field some time this week. Josh Brown, James Butler, John Greco, Justin King, and Eugene Sims will be out again this week. Not good for Sims and King, who are fighting for spots right now. CJ Ah You, Ron Bartell, Jacob Bell, Brandon Gibson, Mardy Gilyard, and Bradley Fletcher will all be back in a limited capacity this week, and Steven Jackson could get some work as well.
In an update on the Brian Westbrook situation, we will have to see what happens. It sounds like the reports of Westbrook coming to St. Louis might have been a bit off, but they are certainly still in the running.
