We are getting closer to Sunday, and the news on Steven Jackson isn’t looking promising. After giving it a go in practice on Thursday, SJ39 did not participate on Friday and is still being called a game-time decision for Sunday against the Ravens. Honestly, I really thought Jackson would be good to go this week, and he still might play, but at this point it’s not looking good. As far as Cadillac Williams goes, he was limited today and will also likely be a game-time decision. It sounds as if Caddy is the more likely of the two to be active, but right now it doesn’t sound like we will know much before Sunday.
Ben Leber was limited in practice as well today, and he’s being called questionable for the Ravens. If I had to put money on it, I’d say he’s going to play but we don’t know for sure at this point. I think Leber is going to be an important factor if he does suit up, so let’s hope for the best.
For the Ravens, it looks like wide receiver Lee Evans will be out Sunday, and David Reed, Ben Grubbs and Jimmy Smith have all missed practice this week. Cory Redding and Terrance Cody have been limited this week, but they are both expected to play.
