We're down to 20 players (not counting kickers and punters) who have participated in every full-squad practice since training camp opened July 29. Those who make it all the way through the season get the satisfaction of knowing they're part of a tough group. A few guys have missed practices while tending to personal matters. Some of them probably deserve extra commendation for tending to things that really matter. We'll point out those guys in the end. For now, the list includes only those who have been there every day.
By my accounting, the 20 guys with perfect full-squad participation are: Matt Hasselbeck, David Greene, Seneca Wallace, Marcus Trufant, Ken Hamlin, Kelly Herndon, Mack Strong, Oliver Celestin, Julian Peterson, D.D. Lewis, Kevin Bentley, Chris Gray, Rob Sims, Sean Locklear, Nate Burleson, Will Heller, Chuck Darby, Chris Cooper, Craig Terrill and Bryce Fisher.
Some other guys have participated in every practice since they've been on the roster, but we're tracking guys who've been here for the duration. The ironmen.
