A little injury update for a couple players, in case you forgot about some of them as we go through a dead period of the NFL offseason.
*Cornerback Orlando Scandrick is doing finger therapy and said he plans on wearing a splint on his broken index finger once the regular season starts. Scandrick broke the finger during Organized Team Activities but expects to be ready for training camp.
*Linebacker Stephen Hodge (microfracture surgery) is hopeful he can return for training camp, remember the first practice is July 24. Hodge did some work on the side during OTAs and the veteran minicamp, so that is a good sign.
*Nose tackle Jay Ratliff (elbow surgery) practiced during the veteran minicamp and should be ready to go for training camp.
*Keith Brooking (knee surgery) had minor surgery but was able to return for the minicamp. He did practice, though missing the second practices of the minicamp. That might remain the same once training camp starts, but he should be fine.
