Amos Zereoue was on the sidelines with just a wrap on his injured left ankle.
Zereoue, who said he still hopes to play against the Lions, said that
after watching the injury on film, it occurred when somebody rolled up
the back of his left ankle on the final play of practice Tuesday.
Plaxico Burress has a sore shoulder and was getting it iced down
following practice. In obvious pain, Burress said he fell on the shoulder
Monday and then aggravated the injury Tuesday morning lifting
weights. It's not considered serious, however.
Jeff Hartings continued to sit out practices, as did Hank Poteat and Tim
Fullback Wes Ours was back.
Backup QBs Phil Stambaugh and Brian St. Pierre were rifling balls all
over the place this morning, most of which were clanging off the hands
of defenders or caroming off the ground.
Neither one of the two QBs seems to have a lot of touch on their
passes. They throw them in two speeds, hard and harder.
Tommy Maddox did not look particularly sharp again, something that's
becoming a troubling trend. Maybe he'll pick it up when the games
The team practices tonight at Greensburg's Offutt Field.
