Thursday news and notes

Hines Ward, WR, Pittsburgh. Ward did not practice after tweaking his injured hamstring Wednesday. Ward has promised he'll play Monday night at San Diego and has two more practices at which he can test his injury.

Ahman Green, RB, Green Bay. It appears Green will be OK to play this week after practicing Thursday. How effective he will be on a banged up knee remains to be seen.

Bobby Engram, Darrell Jackson, WRs, Seattle. It looks like Engram will be out this week with two cracked ribs. Jackson, meanwhile, is also doubtful and likely will sit as well.

Cadillac Williams, RB, Tampa Bay. Williams told reporters Wednesday it may be best if he sits out this week to rest his injured hamstring. It will be up to the trainers. Michael Pittman would start in his place.

Kelly Holcomb, QB, Buffalo. Holcomb will replace ineffective J.P. Losman this week against Miami. That's good news for anybody who still owns Eric Moulds or Lee Evans, who have been suffering with Losman's stuggles.

Stephen Davis, RB, Carolina. After sitting out practice Wednesday, Davis was back Thursday.

Rudi Johnson, RB, Cincinnati. Johnson was back at practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday with a knee injury.

Terrence Murphy, WR, Green Bay. Murphy was placed on IR. Bump Antonio Chatman up on your pick-up list.
