Wednesday's practice report: Gaither looks set to return

Offensive tackle Jared Gaither had a full practice and appears set to return to the starting lineup for Sunday's regular-season finale at Oakland. Gaither has missed the past three games with foot and back injuries.

Gaither is expected to take back his job at left tackle, and rookie first-round pick Michael Oher would return to the right side, where he has started 10 games this season.
