Catching up following another busy afternoon ...
-- In case you didn't see it earlier, center Olin Kreutz was removed from the physically unable to perform list after his Achilles tendon checked out in a physical. He practiced for the first time in a warm afternoon workout.
"It's nice to get Olin back in,'' offensive coordinator Ron Turner said. ''Olin's a leader of this team, not only a vocal leader but just a leader by example. He's a great football player, so you miss that part of him, but we miss his leadership in the huddle, so it's nice to get him back out.
"I could see every day he was itching more and more to get out here. But he's also very smart. He's a veteran. He knows he's got to take care of his body and get himself right. Again, it was great to get him out here."
-- Undrafted rookie quarterback Nick Hill was placed on waivers leaving Caleb Hanie, another undrafted project, as the No. 3.
-- Filling Hill's spot is tight end Marcus Stone, who was let go last week when Devin Hester reported. Stone will be at practice Wednesday.
-- Rookie offensive tackle Chris Williams (back) missed his fifth straight day and sixth practice. The hope is he will be back in action before the end of the week.
-- Kevin Payne is working as the strong safety with the second defense and rookie Craig Steltz is Mike Brown's understudy as the No. 2 free safety.
