Carr, D'Imperio return to practice

Posted by: Mark Craig under NFC, Leslie Frazier, Leslie Frazier Updated: August 28, 2012 - 11:50 AM

Anytime a Tuesday is a Friday, it's a good thing. 

With the final preseason game at Houston on Thursday, today is being treated like a typical Friday at Winter Park. The practice is short and done without pads or heavy contact.

Injured players returning to today's "practice" are cornerback Chris Carr (back) and fullback Ryan D'Imperio (shoulder). Injured players still out and now unlikely to play on Thursday are: safety Mistral Raymond (back), safety Andrew Sendejo (ankle), cornerback/punt returner Marcus Sherels (ankle) and cornerback Josh Robinson (concussion).

We'll have more after talking with coach Leslie Frazier after practice.
