Harvin Active, Three Corners Again

Joe Webb will be inactive as the third quarterback, able to play only in an […]

Today’s Inactives, Griffin Is Out

Harvin And Sapp Carted Off Practice Field

One of the biggest concerns this time of year is whether or not a team can have successful practices without jeopardizing the health of their football team. Today’s first practice was in full pads, and rookie running back Toby Gerhart can tell you that it was a practice that featured some good old fashioned contact.  […]
