Monday night football open thread (with news updates)

New, comments

This is an open thread for Monday Night Football. The Cardinals and the 49ers play for your sporting entertainment.

Today, and for the next few days, I have a big work project that I have to get done so I won't be posting as often. Hopefully, Brandon and Tuna Helper will pick up the slack and you guys can help too by putting up some FanPosts whenever you see news or just have something to discuss.

I didn't even have time to write-up Wade Phillips' press conference today. Not much news from today, we still haven't decided who will hold on kicks yet. Wade also noted that Orlando Scandrick will continue to be the nickel corner and play in the slot.

Also, Felix Jones didn't practice but he says he'll be ready to go on Wednesday. The other guys practiced who are coming off of injury.

Felix Jones, who hasn't practiced since injuring his left hamstring Oct. 12 against Arizona, did not return for Monday morning's workout, instead rehabbing with trainers off to the side. Tony Romo (finger), Kyle Kosier (foot) and Terence Newman (abdomen) all practiced, and Jones said he expects to be back to work Wednesday after an off-day Tuesday.

"Yea," Jones said. "I'll be out there (Wednesday). They told me to get my rest. This was something that needed to get totally healed before I get back on the field, otherwise we could have more problems with it. I listened to it and I think I'm feeling really good and I'll be ready to play this coming Sunday."

Romo supposedly was throwing the ball with zip.

Wade Phillips said Tony Romo was throwing passes with velocity during Monday's practice, which must have been a welcomed sight after three weeks of Brad Johnson taking the first-team reps, and a limited Romo throwing last week. Romo practiced with a splint to guard the fifth finger on his throwing hand, which he fractured in the overtime loss at Arizona on Oct. 12.

We may catch a break as Clinton Portis is banged-up and is 50-50 to play.

Hat tip to Mullin for posting the news.
