Temple football coach Matt Rhule talks about the first early practices of the spring

Matt Rhule met with the media on Tuesday following the second of 15 spring practices in 2016.

While there's a lot of excitement on North Broad Street about the Temple men's basketball team's return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in three years, the football team is also back to work.

After an historic season in which the Owls spent most of the year in the Top 25, they opened up spring practice on Monday. After the second of those sessions, which will culminate with the Cherry and White game on April 16, coach Matt Rhule met with the media Tuesday.

Rhule talked about his expectations for his fourth spring practice, updated the progress of some younger players and gave a rundown of players who will be held back by injuries over the next few weeks. Watch Rhule's press conference above.
