"The defensive backs are led by Jason Allen," Fulmer said. "We've got some work to do to find our other starters."
C.J. Leak is also trying to find a place to call home in the secondary. Leak took off the green no-contact jersey in favor of a white defensive uniform. He got extensive work in with the safeties.
Fulmer expects Leak to see some snaps in the defensive backfield during Saturday's scrimmage.
"I‚m going to give it all I got," Leak said. " played one game at safety in high school and I think I made eleven tackles just running around."
For the most part, Saturday‚s scrimmage will be a depth building exercise.
Several nagging injuries have sidelined some projected starters, too. Robert Meacham tweaked a knee on Thursday and didn‚t practice on Friday. Albert Toeaina didn't work out because of a slight knee injury. Cory Anderson and Brad Cottam both had on green jerseys. Cottam was spotted running routes on the field. Anderson didn't make it off the sidelines. Karlton Neal didn't participate either. Don't look for many of the above to see much action tomorrow.
„If anyobody's banged up, they're probably not going to go (in the scrimmage)," Fulmer said.
