[b]It's a day one on a short week so there are a number of players sitting out including: defensive tackles Ted Laurent and Bryan Hall, defensive backs Rico Murray and Brandon Stewart, running back Mossis Madu. Defensive tackle Brian Bulcke, who injured his shoulder in the game Sunday, isn't even here.
That list would be concerning if it was day three. But my guess is that several of them - though not Bulcke - will be ready by Saturday.
On the plus side corner Delvin Breaux and running back C.J. Gable are practicing, as are receiver/return men Brandon Banks and Quincy McDuffie. After Terrel Sinkfield's TD return on Sunday, Ticats may be faced with a nice problem: which touchdown-scoring speedy return guy to dress on Saturday versus the Eskimos.[/b]
• No official word on the Justin Hickman signing. I'm confident it's happening.
