is the big name on this list. He hasn't participated since July 31, more than two weeks at this point. His injury was originally a foot bruise, others have said a heel injury.

came up with a hamstring injury earlier this week and has been sitting out. Sounds like a minor injury if handled right but it's notable that he also missed time earlier this offseason with a hamstring problem.
Now for the good news. Shane Bannon
, last year's mystery IR player, is back on the field in pads after missing time due to injury. Junior Hemingway
, who has been out for a couple of weeks, "was able to start some movement stuff," Crennel said on Tuesday.

That's good news on Hemingway, who was slowly becoming this year's mystery IR candidate.
