Zorn Concerned about Fletcher, Carter
Jim Zorn said he is concerned about middle linebacker London Fletcher's ability to face the Giants Sunday, with starting end Andre Carter still a question as well. Fletcher and Carter are both dealing with foot strains. Starting left tackle Chris Samuels was very limited in practice, but he is scheduled to play again with a lingering knee injury.
Running back Clinton Portis continues to rest with knee, hip and rib injuries, but is expected to start as usual. Portis has not been practicing regularly for weeks, but is thriving despite the pain on game days and he leads the NFL in rushing.
Zorn said that Fletcher is still wearing a protective boot and he was unable to take part in any drills today. Zorn said "we'll see" if Fletcher can do anything in terms of practice on Friday, but he did not seem overly optimistic. H.B. Blades has been taking all the snaps with the first-team defense in practice and the focus is on getting him ready.
"We're getting H.B. ready, completely," Zorn said.
Carter is no longer wearing a boot on his injured foot, but is still experiencing discomfort in his arch and is moving "very, very gingerly," according to Zorn. Defensive tackles Cornelius Griffin (shoulder) and Kedric Golston (bone spurs in the ankle) did limited work with trainers as well, while defensive tackle Anthony Montgomery has recovered from his Achilles' injury and is practicing fully.
