Crowder said he’s confident that he can get over the hump in the next couple days. Pain has been the issue, particularly when cutting and planting, but it’s more tolerable now.
“Jamison did a lot more today, which was positive,” Gruden said. “He’s got some soreness a little bit, but he’s working through it. Chris Thompson, when you watch him run, there is no issue. He looks fast, he looks quick. I think he’s going to be fine. We just have to make sure we protect it.”
Running back Adrian Peterson (shoulder), cornerback Quinton Dunbar (shin), Morgan Moses (ankle), defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis (shin) and linebacker Zach Brown (knee/shin) did not practice on Thursday.
Guard Tony Bergstrom (knee), tight end Jordan Reed (back) and wide receiver Trey Quinn (ankle) were limited.
“A lot of these guys, we need to see some progression, obviously, in the next couple days,” Gruden said. “Hopefully we’ll see that with Moses and Matt and Zach Brown.”
With the game being on Monday, the normal practice schedule shifts back a day. Peterson typically takes this practice off, but he is still dealing with a shoulder injury that has been an issue since early October.
The team confirmed that linebacker Cassanova McKinzy was officially placed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle on Tuesday.
