Wednesday practice update

DT Tommie Harris is sitting out practice with his sprained left knee and tweaked hamstring. CB Nathan Vasher was also sidelined with his groin pull and is not expected to play this week.

There was good news, though.

DT Darwin Walker was back on the field. Walker missed last week with a sprained left knee.

More later.

And now for the more: Walker participated in part of practice and provided there are no setbacks, he’s expected to play Sunday. LG Ruben Brown was also limited to parts of practice because of a shoulder injury. That’s been the case with Brown the last few weeks, but he said he’s feeling stronger and is expected to start Sunday. He could be a full-go at Thursday’s practice.
