Allen, Watkins, and Gilyard missed Monday's game. Sims, who started in Allen's place, did not have a previously reported injury.

Phillip Thomas, who was signed to the practice squad, practiced. So did Frank Trotter, who was set to be released from the practice squad but is still on after Julian Vandervelde's promotion.
