I have to finish the story on the running game, which I will post later, but here is a quick rundown of practice.
Mo Morris did not practice. Will Heller practiced. Rocky Bernard was dressed but had limited (very limited) participation.
Jordan Babineaux was the best player on this day, breaking up three plays by Seneca Wallace and involved in a few other.
Deon Grant had an incredible one-handed (left hand) interception.
Newly signed Kyle Williams blew up Brandon Mebane during one drill, prompting Pork Chop to run over and give Williams the customary jump-and-chest-bump.
Kelly Jennings made a really nice play to break up a pass between Seneca and Bobby Engram, earning a lot of praise from the coaching staff, including Holmgren.
Courtney Taylor had one very impressive catch along the sideline, going up and over the defender. I think he caught it and kept his feet in, but a coach along the sidelines ruled he was out. I think the coach did it to make the first D feel better, selling out a rookie, but the gragarious Taylor knew he caught it.
Brian Russell and CJ Wallace were running sprints after practice.
By the way, I asked Russell what he said to Trent Dilfer during that play. He said a bunch of people have asked him so guessed that it was shown on TV. He said he and Dilfer were tight when they were both in Cleveland and so he knows how to push Dilfer’s buttons, but he didn’t want to reveal what he said.
