Brooks sits out of practice



Linebacker Derrick Brooks sat out of practice Saturday morning due to hamstring injury. Brooks came off the field early Friday complaining of soreness.

""I don't know what it was,'' Brooks said. ""I just kind of pulled up.'' Also, defensive end Greg Spires and Michael Pittman were held out of practice.

Coach Jon Gruden said many veterans will be given time off from time to time to keep them fresh. During this afternoon's practice, quarterback Jeff Garcia will be one of them. Gruden said he plans to hold him out of the afternoon practice to allow him to get physical treatment and to work out.
