Jansen's Pushing Himself to Play
Practice is beginning with all accounted for and Dan Steinberg reports:
Jim Zorn said Wednesday that right tackle Jon Jansen practiced "in a limited fashion" and is still hopeful about playing in Sunday's regular season finale.
"He's just trying to push himself," Zorn said of Jansen, who has missed the past two games with a knee injury. "He really wants to participate, he really wants to be part of the group. We're moving along, and he wants to be a part of it. He's a gutsy guy, and I tip my hat to what he's trying to do."
Zorn said several other players who have battled late-season injuries, including Kedric Golston, Jason Taylor, Clinton Portis and Cornelius Griffin, also were in some way limited during Wednesday's session. All but Golston played last week against the Eagles, and Zorn said "I suspect [Golston's] gonna play" Sunday.
Zorn also reiterated that he will not alter his approach Sunday merely to get more snaps for his younger players.
"I don't think so," he said. "I think if it's within our plan of trying to win the game, yes, but not just to experiment or give a guy a few reps because he's a young guy and we want to see him more. We're not gonna get anything more out of that, out of a few more reps. We're gonna get a lot more out of winning, I think, so that's what I want to do, and I think everybody wants that as well."
