Today in Austin Seferian-Jenkins right-hand watch reveals the same thing as … yesterday. Seferian-Jenkins did not wear any protection for the previously broken pinkie on his right hand.
On to some quick hits before we start the chat:
> Jesse Callier said he thinks he’s faster than before his knee injury in last year’s opener. He also said he loves covering kickoffs, likening it to the clashes in the Lord of the Rings movies.
> Deontae Cooper stayed after practice to work on some extra cutting in the end zone. He did the same Tuesday. He says he’s over the mental hump of all his injuries. He also said he will be “ecstatic” Saturday to come out of the tunnel and finally be part of a game-day extravaganza. Lastly, Cooper also sounds like he is ready to get his first carry out of the way so everyone stops asking him about it.
> Head coach Steve Sarkisian said he’s made decisions on who will redshirt, but won’t be sharing them until after Saturday’s game.
> Talked to FV Psalm Wooching. He says Jonathan Amosa took him under his wing last year and “taught him the way of the full back.” Wooching explained his role in the offense as “hard hat” and that it’s one that he embraces.
> Today is our last peek at practice this week, and it appears everyone, particularly the ACL guys, are ready to go. In regard to camp, this has been a best-case scenario with that group. Hau’oli Kikaha and Colin Tanigawa have become starters after significant injuries last year. Callier and Cooper appear ready. Lawrence Lagafuaina is on the depth chart. Not only have all those guys come back, but they appear ready to play significant roles.
