Doucet’s ribs and the first practice back

Posted by Darren Urban on August 31, 2009 – 2:18 pm

Turns out Early Doucet fractured some ribs earlier in the game against the Packers, which is why he was sitting at practice today (and perhaps why he could reach up to bring down the two-point conversion at the end of the game). Coach Ken Whisenhunt said he didn’t know how much time that will cost Doucet from the field. Quarterback Matt Leinart sat out with a sore shoulder; Whisenhunt downplayed that situation in terms of seriousness. QB Brian St. Pierre remains limited with his bad back and WR Anquan Boldin is getting better with his hamstring, but still sits.

In the meantime, the first practice back was not a fun one. Whisenhunt said the players were stewing about the performance against Green Bay and the mood of the team (not helped by the heat) wasn’t exactly chipper. Whisenhunt reiterated he wasn’t sure how much he was going to play the starters Thursday but that today — while he was still mad — probably wasn’t a good day to make the decision.
