According to Matt Stypulkoski of NJ Advance Media there was only one notable name who did not participate in practice today. RB Isaiah Crowell who is dealing with a toe injury was held from practice for the second straight day. Coach Todd Bowles in his post practice press conference expressed that there is some level of “concern” regarding Crowells’ toe. At this point in the season I personally wouldn’t mind seeing Crowell be sidelined for this game opening the door for fellow running backs Eli McGuire and Trenton Cannon to receive the bulk of playing time gaining more experience. When we get to the final stretch of lost season I always lean more towards playing the youth to see what they are capable of, going into the 2019 season. One other notable name who did not practice on Wednesday but was limited today was C/G Spencer Long who was dealing with an illness that held him out of last weeks game against the Titans. I would like to see Long play this week at left guard to first see how he fair playing the position and if he would be an option in 2019 and secondly I feel more confident with another veteran offensive lineman starting to protect Sam Darnold now that he is back in the lineup.
