Coach Tomlin gave injury updates to the media during his press conference earlier, and the news sounded pretty promising.
Ramon Foster, who left the Raiders game with a concussion, has been cleared to practice. Coach Tomlin said, “We’ll let that practice participation dictate where we go with him. Obviously, with that concussion, we’ll do what’s appropriate like we always do.”
David DeCastro will be limited early in the week, maybe with an opportunity to play with his ankle injury.
Guy Whimper could be limited in the early portion of the week with his hyper-extended knee, but he’s expected to be available for the game and to practice at some point.
Steve McLendon was ill yesterday and was sent home.
Markus Wheaton’s finger fracture is being evaluated to see what his availability will be for the game this week, and for practice.
Lawrence Timmons continues to work through his hand injury, but it didn’t effect his availability during the Raiders game, and it’s not expected to for the Patriots game either.
