I like it when Payton says stuff like, "Mark's got a little hand" I just laugh my tail off and say that must be rough on his wife.
Payton is waiting on Thomas to see how he does with the cast thing they have to put on there. Simoneau I heard was like a hairline thing, Payton didn't seem too worried about it but we'll see, you never know with those things.
S Bryan Scott Probable Foot
DE Will Smith Questionable Knee
TE Ernie Conwell Out Knee* (to Injured Reserve)
RB Aaron Stecker Questionable Ankle
CB Fred Thomas Probable Thumb
WR Marques Colston Questionable Ankle*
LB Mark Simoneau Questionable Hand*
WR Joe Horn Questionable Groin*
I saw that he had went out in that game, twice actually. I guess if it was a knee and he was able to come back into the game it must not have been that bad. I don't know why his status would be questionable now, though.
Whitehead can play for Will. He did well against Vick and should be adequate this weekend.
I'm more concerned about Horn and Colston being out. Even though Devery has come on strong recently this means that Copper will have to start. This will hurt our passing game a lot. I expect to see a lot of passes to the TE's and to the RB's this Sunday.
Clark can play for Simoneau. He is actually better against the than Simoneau and can help improve our run defense.
We need Fred because we are already thin at DB's and Craft and Stoutmire play out of position too much.
We should be able to rest some people against the 49ers and still win. We'll need them back when we travel to Dallas for the BIG game.
Simoneau had his left hand bandaged and his arm in a sling, but he would not discuss the nature of his injury other than to acknowledge it was his hand. Simoneau said he hoped to be able to resume practice today.
Coach Sean Payton said Simoneau had a fracture in his hand and said Simoneau would be listed as questionable for Sunday's game.
