"We had a lot of kicking situations scheduled but because of the wet field and the conditions we just felt there was too much room in a big open space for guys to get injured," explained Joe DeForest.
The kicking unit did convert on all three extra points tried during the scrimmage as returning kicker Jason Ricks, walk-on transfer Dan Bailey, and walk-on Patrick Kollars each hit a PAT. Before practice the punt team got in its work.
"That was just a scout punt return and we were working protection (with the punt units)," said DeForest. "We had scheduled four punt returns in the scrimmage, kickoff and kickoff returns, and long field goals at the end but because of the weather we didn't get to do that."
Add Another Black Shirt on Defense
The eighth player on the Cowboy defense to earn a black practice jersey is defensive tackle Jeray Chatham. Chatham, a former offensive lineman that has been on the starting defense all spring, joins fellow defensive linemen Maurice Cummings, and Marque Fountain along with linebackers Donovan Woods and Jeremy Nethon as a member of the black shirts. The black jerseys signify a player that is getting it done on and off the field in the eyes of the defensive coaching staff. Martel Van Zant, Quinton Moore, and Jacob Lacey are players in the secondary wearing black jerseys.
