- With Free out, Sam Rice and Ashton Duhe worked with the first team line

- Ben Gottschalk and Margus Hunt were full participants in today's practice

- Joseph was impressive and caught a nice deep ball from Garrett Gilbert

- Arrius Holleman has been reduced to a scout team receiver and did not work with the second team today. Instead, Austin Fuller lined up out wide
