The injury report on Thursday was a bit shorter than it has been according to interim head coach Joe Vitt with one key player finally returning.

Fullback Jed Collins(toe/ankle) was a full go in practice as was running back Chris Ivory(hamstring).  Both players were out of last week’s practice and missed the game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Cornerback Jabari Greer(concussion), running back Pierre Thomas(knee), and defensive tackle Akiem Hicks(knee) missed practice for the second day in a row.

Out of the three, Greer is the most likely to miss the upcoming game against the Carolina Panthers since it’s apparent that he is still having the lingering concussion symptoms and can’t pass the protocol test to come back on the field.
