Najee Toran missed practice on Thursday. He had to go home to Houston due to a death in the family. He'll be back for the game on Saturday.
Jim Mora talks about the offensive line on Thursday:
On Jake Brendel:
Game time decision. We'll see where he's at. He got a lot of good practice in this week, which was encouraging, but we'll decide as we get closer to the game.
On Ben Wysocki:
He's kind of the same as always. He's steady and versatile and can play all the positions on the offensive line. Very focused. He got married and had a child. He's kind of a more mature man. I can't call him a kid anymore. His wife is a very understanding woman.
On Wysocki always being ready:
Ben is always ready and incredibly smart. He takes a lot of pride in understanding the entire scheme and being ready to go in at center or guard at a moments notice. He did it last year in our second to last game of the season, without much practice and I think he took pride in that.
On Simon Goines:
We'll see, I know he's working hard to get back. So we'll see where he is.
