Special Teams Practice – Welcome Home Luncheon Update

This afternoon’s special teams practice was unremarkable (to say the least). The high point was Keith Eloi nearly managing to catch six balls off the JUGS machine at once, and who knows — if he had succeeded, it might’ve been worth writing about. As it stands, though, I’ll just note that special teams practice happened and everyone made it off the field healthy.

In other news, we’re coming up on the Welcome Home Luncheon, which I wrote about at length last year. It’s a good event, and tickets are still available.

On the football field, the word was “healthy”. The only people who did not practice were Scott Burley (quad), Anthony Alridge (foot), and rookie Robert Henson (birth of child, as announced on Twitter — congratulations to Robert and his family).

Practice was in shorts and shells, and — while Jason Campbell looked sharp and it was great to see Carlos Rogers back out on the field — I mainly found myself watching a few of the guys who had a rough time in Thursday night’s game. Read more »
