Following practice, Pharaoh Brown told reporters that he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a broken leg suffered during the Utah game last year. Brown did not indicate a timeline when he might be ready to go but did indicate that he participated in the first day of workouts today.
Defensive end De'Forest Buckner said that the team is shaping up and during the summer, some of the veteran defensive players worked with newcomers in basics so that when camp started the coaches job would flow a bit smoother.
Offensive coordinator Scott Frost reiterated that Thomas Tyner is still on the team however as per the coaches policy, he would not discuss Tyner's injury or when Tyner might return.
A spokesman for the Athletic Department clarified earlier reports indicating Tyner was not on the official roster that was passed out during Media Day, earlier this morning.
"The only players listed on the roster handed out were those that will actually participate in fall camp," the spokesman said.
During the morning media session, Devon Allen indicated he is recovered from his injury suffered on the kickoff at the Rose Bowl against Florida State. Allen said he has worked hard and believes he is nearly ready to go and that the only difficulty he is having is decellerating. He also indicated he would not play until he is "100 percent" ready to play.
Allen also indicated he plans on trying out for the US Olympic Team in 2016.
