As we wait for coach Ken Whisenhunt to talk here at lunch, we also wait to see if there is news about wide receiver Early Doucet, who made a spectacular, full-out, leaping lay out catch on a Matt Leinart throw but came down hard and was down for a couple of minutes. He seemed to be favoring his left arm somewhere, but who knows. Again, hopefully Whisenhunt will have an update. There were already a couple more guys sitting out -- we haven't heard yet why CB Bryant McFadden and DT Gabe Watson missed the morning practice.
UPDATE: Doucet hurt his left shoulder and Whisehunt said he is having an MRI right now. McFadden has a slight ankle sprain he hurt making his pick play against Fitz yesterday. Watson has a sore knee and sat out this morning as a precaution.
P.S. Just ducked into the cafeteria to see if a certain player was around, and lo and behold, the NFC Championship game is on NFL Network again for lunch viewing.
