POSITION:                                                  BACKUP IN CASE:

Reggie Bush (Knee Bruise - limited on Wednesday)   Daniel Thomas

   Status: Late Game _ TBD

Steven Jackson (Groin - absent all week)                  Daryl Richardson

  Status: ACTIVE!  Wasn't pretty last week but if you have no other bench options then roll
