But just as Jordan returned, another key defensive player went down.

Cornerback Nolan Carroll, the starter in the nickel (five defensive backs) package and a key special teams player, stopped practicing early Tuesday and received attention from trainer Kevin O’Neill regarding an apparent back ailment. Safety Jimmy Wilson took snaps with the first-team nickel defense in Carroll’s place.

Carroll’s non-participation takes on slightly more significance considering rookie cornerback Will Davis (left foot), a key reserve, missed his second consecutive day of practice.
