Second, the defense is not letting up on newcomer Amir Carlisle, and he's taking all the hits well. Taylor Ashton and Simione Vehikite knocked Carlisle out of bounds on a play, and then made sure he stayed down for a few seconds after the play.
Third, while it's notable that wide receiver Markeith Ambles was there, he didn't do much besides that. Wearing a numberless white jersey, Ambles watched with the defensive backs on the sideline. He participated in a few individual drills but nothing beyond that.
Fourth, offensive linemen and freshman Marcus Martin is still adjusting to the college level. On two separate occasions, Martin had to run an extra lap for what would have been a false-start penalty had the session been a game.
Fifth, with rightside end Nick Perry sitting out a good amount to rest, Wes Horton and Devon Kennard are no longer sharing time at end and are feeling the value of those many repetitions. Both ends have been playing well with the first-team defense.
