Injury Updates

From the WP:

Running back Ladell Betts strained his hamstring during Tuesday's practice and missed yesterday's session; Tyer said he will miss at least a few more days. Cornerback Rufus Brown missed practice with a strained groin. He, linebacker Chris Clemons (sprained ankle), defensive lineman Phillip Daniels (abdominal strain), wide receiver Taylor Jacobs (abdominal strain), and offensive lineman Brandon Winey (ankle) are day-to-day, Tyer said.
Offensive lineman Randy Thomas (swelling in right knee) and wide receiver Cliff Russell (hamstring) are out at least a few more days. Cornerback Walt Harris continued his rehab from a knee injury and worked with the staff on running exercises after practice. He is still not cleared for drills and must pass a physical before being taken off the physically unable to perform list. Offensive lineman Kenyatta Jones returned from his ankle injury.

Wide receiver Darnerien McCants, defensive back Ade Jimoh, wide receiver Jafar Williams and cornerback Rashad Bauman were removed from practice yesterday when they became overheated.

Yesterday's practice began at 2 p.m. and lasted for two hours -- the longest thus far -- and the heat and humidity were brutal for the duration.

Brandon Noble also has a broken hand and will be out ~10 days. You have to feel sorry for him.

I have to believe that the staff is going to err on the side of caution with all these injuries. I believe that if it were the regular season, we wouldn't hear much about these rather insignificant boo-boos.

Betts is hurt, I can't believe it. I really hope he can stay healthy this year, I think he's going to be a great fit in this offense.

Hey, I didn't see Springs on the field today (8/5), I was wondering if anything happened to him.

Springs was there and participated in practice-- no problems.

Portis sat out with what he described as soreness and stiffness, nothing serious at all, just wanted to rest for a day-- something which drew the mild derision of fellow runningback Chad Morton, who could be heard telling Portis jokingly, "I hate you, man. I really hate you."

Betts says he's basically good to go, but the training staff is holding him back because there's really no sense in rushing him back out there when it's not really necessary. He said his hamstring just got tweaked a little bit, and he could play right now if he had to; but you don't want to rush a hamstring, because those things can just pop completely if you come back too soon.

I saw cornerback Walt Harris working by himself on his backpedal and swivel after practice, apparently testing his knee to see how much pain or inflexibility there might still be. He looked like he was moving around pretty good, so I would expect he'll be off the PUP list in the next week or two.
