Week 8 Essential NFL Practice News & Notes for Friday
Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) took limited practice reps again Friday. Griffin is not expected to play on Monday night. Colt McCoy will get the start. He completed 11 of 12 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown in Week 7, though his numbers were inflated by a 70-yard catch and run by Pierre Garcon.
Titans QB Jake Locker (right hand, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 8. Zach Mettenberger will get the start for the Titans. He has a strong arm, which may be good for deep threat Justin Hunter.
Buccaneers QB Josh McCown (right thumb, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 8. We’re expecting Mike Glennon to continue to start for the Bucs.
Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday. No worries here. The Cowboys don’t play until Monday night, so Romo was just getting his usual rest on Thursday.
