The media was only able to view a portion of the special teams practice this morning.
There was no sign of veteran cornerback Ricky Manning Jr. on the field.
1. Manning is not involved in special teams and showed up on the field after the press was ushered inside.
2. He developed an injury at some point Monday (he looked fine playing four square in the locker room after practice yesterday).
3. Something else is going on.
We'll look into it when practice ends.
*** Long snapper Pat Mannelly (neck stinger) was sitting out the practice. That just about guarantees he will sit out Thursday's game at Cleveland.
