Tom Silverstein of the Journal Sentinel wrote:It takes guts: Kicker Mason Crosby has been taking it easy this week because of an abdominal pull he aggravated Tuesday lifting weights.

The injury has bothered him since training camp and is partially the result of doing so much kicking. Crosby had to work through an early camp slump and then a temporary change in holders and may have kicked more than normal.

At this point, he doesn't seem in danger of missing any time.

"Mason, I think he's fine," special teams coach Shawn Slocum said. "This is precautionary. He went through the training camp and the beginning of the season and he's kicked a lot of balls, so it's not surprising for him to get a little fatigued. We're being very careful with (him) so he's ready to go."

Crosby did not kick Wednesday or Thursday.
