ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Cornerback Tramaine Brock could return to practice this week, but he likely will not play Saturday against Minnesota, Head Coach Vance Joseph said.
“If he does [practice], he probably won’t play in the game, to be honest,” Joseph said Tuesday. “It’s a hamstring. He’s getting better fast, but just being smart for the long run, he probably won’t go on Saturday.”
Joseph said on July 31 that Brock would miss about a week.
UPDATE [4:43 p.m. MT]: Defensive end Clinton McDonald missed walkthrough with a shoulder injury, Head Coach Vance Joseph said Tuesday afternoon.
Other Tuesday injury news:
- Joseph reiterated his hope that tight end Jeff Heuerman would return this week after missing the last week of practice.
“He’s doing well. He’s progressing,” Joseph said.
- Troy Fumagalli missed Tuesday’s practice with a slight groin strain.
“We’re just being smart with him,” Joseph said. “He was really sore the last couple days, so we gave him a day to get better.”
- Safety Su’a Cravens again missed practice with knee soreness.
- Linebacker Joe Jones also did not practice.
