No Practice for Harris, Still Expected to Play

*LB David Harris missed practice Tuesday, but he will play on Sunday according to Dave Hutchinson. Harris has a mild right ankle sprain suffered in the Bengals game Sunday. He'll probably be listed as questionable, but the early word is that he will start.

*And that's especially good news because his backup, LB Ryan Fowler, suffered a head injury, and we've seen how sensitive an issue concussions have been recently. He practiced, but he wore a red non-contact pinny, so it's unclear if he will play. If for some reason both Harris and Fowler are out, then LB Kenwyn Cummings would be pressed into duty.

*CB Donald Strickland participated in limited practice and could give it a go Saturday. He'll probably be questionable as well.

*The other injury situation to watch is again P Steve Weatherford. He pulled a hamstring last week and barely practiced before playing Sunday. The punting game didn't matter much then, but the Jets won't put up 37 points Saturday, so field position will be critical.
