Per league rules, teams must keep practices open to the local media for for the first 30 minutes or until team drills began. The open period lasted 13 minutes on Friday.Goldson has not practiced since experiencing knee soreness last week. He is not wearing a brace or sleeve on his knee. Veteran Madieu Williams is expected to start at free safety on Sunday, alongside strong safety Donte Whitner.
