The rest will also help injured players hopefully return to practice on Monday.  Cornerback Patrick Robinson(shoulder), tight end Jimmy Graham(back), and linebacker David Hawthorne(hip flexor) are expected to return to practice, but Hawthorne could be limited.

Cornerback Jabari Greer(sports hernia surgery) is still recovering but Vitt gave encouraging news that he is ahead of schedule in his recovery timetable, which is set for the beginning of the season.

Not so promising is news on rookie wide receiver Nick Toon(ankle) who isn’t expected to practice on Monday after being out for a week with the injury, however Vitt didn’t seem too concerned.

News on wide receiver Adrian Arrington was conflicting as Vitt hinted that he might need surgery on his knee, but then corrected himself saying that they are seeking a second opinion still with the initial diagnosis, which is a possible issue with his meniscus.
