Wednesday’s walk through practice was closed to the pubic, but afterward head coach Rob Chudzinski provided some updates on who would be sitting out the first preseason game against the Rams. “Shaun Lauvao will not play, he’ll be out for the game.” Chudzinski said. “Trent Richardson and T.J. Ward we’ll also hold for the game. Those guys would be available to play normally, but since it’s the preseason we’re going to be smart with them.” In addition, rookie Leon McFadden will not play with a pulled groin suffered in practice Tuesday. WR David Nelson, RB Montario Hardesty, FB Brad Smelley, OL Ryan Miller, OL Oniel Cousins and DL Chris Faulk will also miss the game with various injuries. These players have been sitting out of practice for several days. Chudzinski did not have any further updates on guard Shaun Lauvao who left practice on a cart Monday after injuring his ankle. Jason Pinkston will start in place of Lauvao. [Related: Training Camp News and Notes: Chudzinski confirms Turner will call plays]
