The injury to offensive tackle Vernon Carey obviously was not serious because he was at practice on Monday afternoon for the team's first workout since Saturday night's preseason opener against Jacksonville.

Carey went down in the first quarter holding his right knee, but Coach Cam Cameron said after the game Carey probably could have returned had it been a regular season game.

Nonetheless, the sight of Carey holding his knee was quite a scare because Carey probably is the surest thing on an offensive line that remains the biggest concern on the team.

Rookie free agent Julius Wilson replaced Carey in the lineup against Jacksonville.

Porter on the bike: Meanwhile, linebacker Joey Porter was riding the stationary bike during practice on Monday, this after saying earlier in the day he was hoping to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Porter underwent arthroscopic twice during his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he said he usally took him about 3-4 weeks to be able to return to the lineup. That would put his return about the time of the Sept. 9 opener at Washington.

One Booker in, one Booker out: Veteran wide receiver Marty Booker, who sat out the Jacksonville game after experiencing soreness in his right knee last week, was back at practice on Monday.

But rookie running back Lorenzo Booker was absent. Although we won't know for sure until Coach Cam Cameron addresses the media after practice, it's probably related to the fact that Booker is about to become a father.
