Stocker (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The blocking tight end has missed the last three games with his injury, but his return to a full practice is certainly a positive sign for his chances of taking the field against the 49ers in Week 7. Stocker's spot on the roster has essentially been filled by Alan Cross during his absence, which means the latter could be jettisoned if the former is indeed able to return to action this coming Sunday.
