8/9 Practice Notes

The Hurricanes practiced again this morning and CanesTime was there for the action. Read on for notes on today's session.

* CanesTime's Jason Null was at practice today and had these notes to report:

* Today was the first day in full pads. There seemed to be some extra excitement about that today.

* Jamal Reid was still not spotted at practice. The only two injured players not dressed are Davon Johnson and Jermaine Barton.

* Today they were working on situations when they had balls inside their own 20 and they had simulated crowd noise playing in the background. All but one of the plays as a running play and the defense looked very good at shutting it down.

* Lamar Miller had a run for about six yards and Mike James about five but otherwise, the defense did an excellent job defending the run today.

* Graig Cooper didn't participate in any of the contact drills and they still are bringing him back in slowly.

* Thearon Collier was walking in street clothes outside the Hecht Center but wasn't on the practice field or anything. He shaved all his hair off.

* Stay tuned for interviews with several players coming up this afternoon
