Clayton returns to practice; Bryant, White still out



Receiver Michael Clayton (knee) returned to practice on Thursday. However receiver Antonio Bryant (knee) and defensive end Stylez G. White (shoulder) were not participating in the afternoon session for the second straight day. Quarterback Byron Leftwich (elbow) did not practice.

If Bryant is unable to play, he will be replaced in the lineup again by Maurice Stovall.

"He's had a week and half off so far. He's been off the last two days, so we've just got to see where he is and make a decision once we get to game day,'' coach Raheem Morris said of Bryant.

"When you talk about the defensive ends, we had eight guys up last week. We've got all those guys in the rotation, you're talking about (Tim) Crowder, Jimmy Wilkerson, (Michael) Bennett coming in and playing a little bit and Kyle Moore is up so we should be okay at the end position. It's something you have to deal with football. We'll be ready to go. I don't want to assume Stylez won't be ready. We don't know yet.''
