The original return date to practice for veterans Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace was supposed to be today (Wednesday), but in speaking to the press, head coach Eric Mangini said that neither of them will participate in practice.
Mangini noted that rookie quarterback Colt McCoy will take all of the reps at quarterback today, but he did not officially name him the starter against the New England Patriots. Other players who will miss practice include Jason Trusnik (birth of son) and John St. Clair (ankle). Lastly, it's worth noting that both Mike Holmgren and Mangini have basically stated that the team won't try to claim WR Randy Moss today. With that said, I wonder if a chance will be taken on LB Shawne Merriman.
