He didn’t practice on Wednesday due to a back injury suffered last week against Philadelphia. Jake Long practiced on a limited basis on Thursday. But today Long was on the side and not practicing putting his status in doubt for Sunday’s game.
That according to the Palm Beach Post, which is reporting that Long only jogged with a helmet on at the start of practice, but did not participate in individual position drills.
We’ll have Long’s official status for Sunday’s game later this afternoon. Reserve OL John Jerry practiced at LT in place of Long on Wednesday. Nate Garner filled in for Long in last week’s game when he left with the back injury, but by most accounts was awful. Jerry was already filling in at right guard for the injured Vernon Carey.
