Zach Banner has been placed on season ending Injured Reserve.  He is scheduled to have his knee operated on tomorrow.  Jerald Hawkins has replaced him on the active roster.  Hawkins is expected to take over the extra tackle and backup swing tackle roles moving forward.

Stefen Wisniewski (chest) is not expected to play this weekend and did not practice.  The coaching staff is preparing Kevin Dotson to make his first NFL start.  David DeCastro also did not practice today.

The great news is every other player that was listed as ‘Did Not Practice’ yesterday, practiced fully today.  See the table below for details.
