* DT Curtis Porter wasn't listed on the newest depth chart because he "has a health issue right now." Golden didn't add any more to that.
* The best defensive tackle throughout fall camp has been sophomore Olsen Pierre. "He''s been the most productive of the group. He's staying in his gap, rushing the passer, and making plays. He's played at a higher level than the others."
* Thompkins has been so impressive that he's now listed as a co-starter. "He had one of the best summers, he's had a spectacular camp, and he's been one of the top five performers through camp."
* Thomas Finnie is finally healthy and ready to make a push for a starting cornerback spot.
* Gabe Terry is the highest true freshman linebacker on the depth chart. "He's everything we thought he'd be. People thought we were crazy for taking him. He's an exciting player. He's fast, athletic, and active."
* Kalvin Cain has made major improvements on and off the field. "His personal troubles are in the past. He's grown up and matured. His effort has been much better the last 5-6 days. He's 6-4, long. He's 240 now and will be 255."
* Seantrel Henderson is still out of town and has a long ways to go, even when he returns to the practice field. "He's 20 practices behind. He needs to take care of personal stuff first."
