Tomlin's Injury Update: Post Giants

"I'll outline some medical things. The two pre-existing injuries to guys who are working their way back – Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) and Le'Veon Bell (knee) – are both being evaluated today, and hopefully we push those guys toward some level of participation this week. Like we always do, we'll evaluate that level of participation, both the quality and the quantity of it, in terms of it being our guide. It's probably more of a legitimate discussion with DeAngelo and probably less so with Darrius, but we'll leave the light on for both guys and we'll see where the week leads us. It's exciting to be getting those guys back closer to readiness.

"A couple more current injuries: Chris Boswell (abdomen) is downstairs rehabbing, and he's got a legitimate chance this week. We've got both kickers on the roster, and we'll manage that probably a little more fluidly than we were able to manage it last week. Last week we had the issue of time, or lack of time. This week we'll have great clarity and an opportunity to get a complete week, not only with Boswell but also with Randy (Bullock) and see where that leads us.

"Then there are the two guys who sustained the in-game concussions – Javon Hargrave and Robert Golden – they are in the protocol. We'll evaluate those guys and keep you abreast of their status in terms of where they are with the protocol."
