Schottenheimer Looking for most Consistent

Brian Schottenheimer hasn’t been made available for reporters who cover the team since the day he was hired in January.

But he spoke about the competition for the starting quarterback job with the SEC Network.

“I think we truly have three guys that are capable of doing it,” Schottenheimer, who coaches the quarterbacks, said last week. “We’re rotating the reps with the ones, giving them all a shot to work in there with the first group. What we’re looking for as a staff this spring is there are going to be good days, bad days, but we’ll come to a point with, ‘Who’s being the most consistent?’ Brice Ramsey was going first among the quarterbacks Tuesday during the first half of the media viewing period. Faton Bauta and Jacob Park took turns going second.

This and that

Defensive back Shattle Fenteng it out for the rest of the spring with a rib injury sustained in Friday’s practice. A full recovery is expected by preseason practices. The Grayson High product who played at Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College played in one game last year on special team before being sidelined by a shoulder injury.

Tailback Keith Marshall ran on the side with other players in non-contact jerseys early in the two hour fulls pads practice. Marshall has missed three practices with a hamstring injury. Running back Sony Michel (shoulder) and receivers Shakenneth Williams (hamstring) and Charlie Hegedus (hamstring) remain out.
