Pinnock has been ruled out of Sunday’s game. Thibodeaux and Ojulari are “doubtful” for the game. Toney is “questionable” and Hamilton is expected to play.

On Toney, Head Coach Brian Daboll said before practice, “He was added back to the injury report. We’ll see where he’s at today. He practiced (on Thursday), participated in some team periods. But his hamstring tightened up, so that’s why he’s back on the injury report… We’ll see (if he can play on Sunday). We’ll come out here today and see what he can do today and see where we’re at.”

OC Jon Feliciano (lower leg) and S Dane Belton (clavicle) fully practiced. Both are expected to play.
