Center Olin Kreutz sidelined again

SHARE Center Olin Kreutz sidelined again

Center Olin Kreutz remained sidelined at practice for the second consecutive day today.

The veteran missed Monday’s 75-minute practice, and it wasn’t a veteran’s day off if he’s still sideline today. He completed the game last Thursday at San Francisco, but may have suffered some type of rib injury. We’ll see if more details are available after practice and when the injury report is released.

Kreutz has a long history of durability and has missed just one game since the start of the 2001 season, a 2002 matchup at St. Louis after he had his appendix removed. The guess here is he’s ready to play Sunday night.

Tight end Desmond Clark (neck) and safety Kevin Payne (back) are also sidelined.

Check back later on for more details.
