Injury report: RB Daccus Turman (knee bruise) practiced on Saturday; DE George Gause (sore knee) was limited; OG Jonathan Alston (ankle) did not practice; WR Sidney Rice (shoulder) did not practice; DT Darrell Shropshire (dental work) did not practice; OL Kris Mick (wrist) did not practice; WR Noah Whiteside (wrist) did practice. In addition, WR Troy Williamson, who missed the last three days of practice while attending his father's funeral in New York, was back at practice Saturday morning.
Assistant head coach Skip Holtz was pleased with how the quarterbacks performed in Friday's scrimmage. Dondrial Pinkins was 11-13 for 188 yards; Syvelle Newton was 4-6 for 57 yards; and Blake Mitchell was 10-12 for 147 yards.
De'Adrian Coley, who had been playing linebacker the past year, was moved to defensive end early in camp and defensive coordinator Rick Minter says that has been a positive move. Coley is currently backing up George Gause at one of the end positions.
Here are some comments from assistant head coach Skip Holtz following Saturday's workout: "The quarterbacks played pretty well in the scrimmage. Everything was live and they took a few good hits. I think we have a few weapons on offense. Syvelle brings a whole new dimension to the offense. People have a tendency to stand up when he's in the game. I know I do. I think our running backs give us some flexibility. Coach Holtz has the final say so on all the play calling. I came down to the field in the second half of the scrimmage to be with the young quarterbacks. It was good that we had the run-through on Friday to work out some of the kinks."
