Head Coach Les Miles spent a few minutes working with the wide receivers on holding on to the ball after the catch during the first period of practice before the wide outs split off to work with quarterbacks JaMarcus Russell and Matt Flynn.
Russell and Flynn split snaps throwing 15-30 yard sideline routs to a host of Tiger receivers including Dwayne Bowe, Amp Hill, Craig Davis and Skyler Green.
A few of the sideline passes thrown by both Russell and Flynn were overthrown, especially to the 5'-10" Green and 6'-0" Early Doucet.
Taller receivers like the 6'-3" Bowe made nearly every catch, including those thrown high. Bowe even managed a one-handed grab on a pass from Flynn that was a few feet wide of its intended target, causing the junior wide out to exclaim, "this is a man's game here!"
The catch drew praise from Tiger Offensive Coordinator Jimbo Fisher.
Both quarterbacks seemed poised and fairly accurate, concentrating on throwing timing routs during the first four periods. Russell displayed the stronger arm and quicker release.
The quarterbacks then joined the tailbacks to practice screen passes for the fifth period while the offensive and defensive line worked on blocking and pulling.
The first team offense then lined up against the first team defense in period six to work on blocking schemes for running plays with Russell calling the signals.
Practice access to the press has been limited to the first five periods with each period lasting five minutes.
Newcomers and a select few veterans will return to the practice field at 3:45 today.
The Tigers will practice in shoulder pads tomorrow and full pads Thursday.
There were no injuries to report and all 105 players should practice at some point today.
PRACTICE REPORT: Aug 8 - Morning
