No green light yet for Galloway



Coach Jon Gruden did not sound optimistic about Joey Galloway's chances of playing Saturday against the Jaguars. (View audio slide show)

Gruden said Galloway (groin) did not practice today after the receiver participated in portion's of practice on Tuesday and Wednesday. It's not clear whether he has suffered a setback in his recovery. Gruden indicated there was some sort of plan that included Galloway not practicing today.

"That's our plan," Gruden said. "He should be ready to go early next week."

Meanwhile, it appears quarterback Jeff Garcia will see at least a little playing time. He isn't 100 percent, but Gruden said he wouldn't play Garcia extensively even if he were completely healthy. Reading between the lines, it sounds like Garcia might play a series or two, tops.

That's interesting because the third preseason game is typically the one in which the starting lineups play the most, sometimes an entire half and even into the third quarter.
