He re-injured his calf Wednesday when he tried to come off the line of scrimmage during team drills and hasn't practiced since.

Bradley said a decision on Gabbert could come as late as pre-game warmups Sunday, but Gabbert took most of the repetitions in practice Friday – a possible sign he is getting closer to being able to play.
