Jim Fassel is hopeful of getting some of his injured players back in uniform
for Sunday's game. The group includes Chris Bober (torn biceps), Ron Dixon

Quincy Monk (ankle).
is a lot better," Fassel said. "I think he has got a chance this
week. He is listed as questionable and did not practice today, but he will
probably practice tomorrow. Ron Dixon
is questionable, he practiced today
and he looked pretty good. Nick Griesen practiced today and I didn't get a
report afterwards, but he looked like he moved around pretty well. Cornelius
Griffin did not practice today, but he is better and does have a chance to
play. Quincy Monk, with the ankle, has a chance to play.
"I'm not going to be overly optimistic and think that all those guys that
have a chance to play are going to make it, but if we can get three out of
those five back or something like that, I think it could help us a lot."
Kenny Holmes (knee) and Will Peterson (concussion) did not practice.
Linebacker Brandon Short (shoulder) and safety Omar Stoutmire (back)
arelisted as probable. Peterson, Short and Stoutmire are all listed as
probable. Holmes is not listed on this week's injury report.
