David DeCastro was on the field today and practiced fully.  If he continues to practice, he should be set to make his first start of the season on Sunday against the Houston Texans.

A lot of players didn’t practice on coach’s decisions, which you can see below. Diontae Johnson to get another first day of practice off and probably will return fully the rest of the week with that toe injury.  As it looks, everyone on the injury should be expected to play this week if they practice tomorrow.
