Yeah, but we just had a bye and he practiced one day before going DNP. That's not good. We need his experience vs. Brees.

I would think he plays. Either way I'm comfortable with Mac. He's been pretty solid this year.

Newman upgraded to limited on Friday and Questionable to play.

Griffen upgraded to full participation and is likely to play Sunday.

A little meaningless given the source but Rhodes said Sendejo should be fine for Sunday. Saw him today.

Let's hope. Any other casualties? Stephen went down, can't recall any others that didn't come back in like Rhodes.

There was a photo of him running up to Harrison and hugging him after the game. It was in that staging area where fans are all around between the field and locker room. Hope he's good to go, I'd imagine we won't know until Friday or so.

Adam Thielen was out today with a lower back injury. When I asked him about it after practice, he said, "I'm good." Also a non participant was Shamar Stephen (back, ankle).

Stephen: OUT
Thielen, Alexander, Sendejo: Questionable

Zimmer expects Sendejo to play but he still has to pass protocol. He practiced in full today.

Weird that you can practice when you haven't passed protocol. Sounds like Jaleel will need to step up this weekend.

I know. I don't get it.

I saw a quote that he's nervous. Not surprising. I want him to get more snaps. I wonder how many he'll see (especially with B-Rob sometimes lining up inside on passing downs). I'd love him to make an impact.
