Offensive tackle Jared Gaither and wide receiver Demetrius Williams missed practice for the second straight day. Gaither, who suffered a scary neck injury in Sunday's 27-21 loss to the New England Patriots, shed the neck brace he wore Wednesday, but could not turn his neck when answering reporters' questions. Williams is dealing with an undisclosed illness.

Free safety Ed Reed (knee), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (back) and linebacker Tavares Gooden (shoulder) practiced fully for the second straight day.
For the Cincinnati Bengals, running back Cedric Benson (hip) practiced fully after sitting out Wednesday. Linebacker Rey Maualuga (knee) was also upgraded to limited participation after missing Wednesday's session.
Starting defensive tackles Tank Johnson (plantar fasciitis in foot) and Domata Peko (chest) were limited for the second consecutive practice. Strong safety Roy Williams (fractured forearm) practiced fully for the second straight day.
