Both players left last week's game against the Broncos with injury. Watson left with a concussion and with Khalif Barnes filling in at right guard, Matt McCants stepped in at right tackle. Barnes was filling in for injured rookie Gabe Jackson who is also still not practicing with an injured knee.
Hayden left the game on Sunday at the end of the third quarter with a groin injury -- the same injury that had him placed on injured reserve last season. It was his first start of the season as he was replacing the injured T.J. Carrie who was replacing the injured Carlos Rogers. Rogers was again not practicing with his injured knee. Carrie was limited in practice last week and was back practicing again Wednesday.
Also not practicing was fullback Jamize Olawale. Chimdi Chekwa returned to practice from his hamstring injury that had him out several weeks.
