- After returning to practice on November 21st, Ryan Whitney completed a full week of practice this week, but said his status "doesn't change on a day-to-day basis" and that it's more week-to-week. Whitney has yet to participate in full-contact drills but should be doing so soon.
"Hopefully, at the end of the road trip this week, I'll be doing everything in practice," Whitney said.
