Here is a portion of the practice report.

2. The kickers were "on" today. We started with kicks around 20 yards and then 29 and so on up to a longest of 57 yards. And they kicked them from different hash marks. Travis Bell nailed every one of his including the one from 57. Mohamed Yahiaoui hit all of his too but the time on the drill ended before he could kick any real long ones. Going back to Bell, all of his were square in the middle except for the longest one which appeared, from my angle, to just make it inside the uprights. He had plenty of distance on it.

7. Djay Jones must have gotten banged up just before team scrimmage. He participated in other activities but stood on the sidelines with Joe Gaston for the rest of practice. Avery Roberson started in his place and again showed up well. I'm very pleased with the camp Avery has had so far.

12. With Mansfield Wrotto still bothered by the injury he received on Saturday, A.J. Smith once again stood in as the starting right tackle. Wrotto better get back soon. AJ was looking comfortable.
