Coach Coker mentioned today that at least three true freshmen could see significant playing time this fall. They are tailback Frank Gore, defensive back Antrel Rolle and defensive back Sean Taylor.
Carl Walker was back this afternoon and according to Coker he "looks special."
Joaquin Gonzalez missed this afternoon's practice but says he is fine. "He is a bit bruised and banged up" Coker said. "This will give Vernon Carey some reps."
One change of note is that Chris Campbell was running with the second team this afternoon while Howard Clark was with the first team. If nothing else this tells us the guys are close and a lot of them will play so starting is not a huge indicator.
Wide receiver Andre Johnson has received high preseason accolades by many publications and when asked about this Andre replied "I don't feel any pressure. I don't pay any attention to that stuff. I know it is there, I just have to go out and prove I can get the job done."
