Bubba Franks became ill during morning practice and sat out the afternoon practice ... David Martin also missed the afternoon practice due to a strained amstring. Devin Lewis hyperextended his knee after colliding with a defender in the afternoon practice and did not return.

Limited participation: James Lee participated in some drills, but was held out of team situations. Originally thought to be a back problem, Lee's pain is now being attributed to an injured hip flexor ... Held out of the second session as a precaution were Chad Clifton, Marco Rivera, Mark Tauscher and Frank Winters.
