▪ Defensive end Charles Johnson and Kony Ealy were excused for personal reasons Wednesday. Johnson left on a cart within the first hour of practice to tend to a personal issue. Ealy showed up to practice about 15 minutes late after tending to his issue. Both are expected to play in Friday’s exhibition against New England.
