Wednesday practice tidbits

* Dominique Byrd ran some routes early in the practice but he didn't have shoulder pads on so he didn't take part in any contact drills. He was working without a knee brace and looked pretty agile while running patterns.

* LenDale White did dress and also went through early drills but he sat out the last part of practice to rest his ankle. When he was in there LenDale looked fine.

* Darnell Bing had real good coverage on Alex Holmes on one play when Matt Leinart tried to roll and hit Alex with a short pass in the end zone. Bing stayed right with Alex and didn't give Matt any open space to throw the football.

* Manuel Wright did not practice, he came on the field and did some conditioning work but that was it.

* Chris McFoy left a drill with a slight limp and did not return for the remainder of practice.

* Ryan Killeen and Mario Danelo both made a pair of field goals in the field goal portion of practice.

* Matt Grootegoed and Greg Farr both had interceptions against the service team offense.

* Tiny Malu and Travis Draper both were getting a lot of work with the service team OL.

* Ryan Powdrell made a good play in the backfield against the first team offense. We saw the 2nd offense and 2nd defense go against each other at the end of the day and the defense got the better end of things today.

* Oscar Lua had a couple big hits to end the day. The first was on David Kirtman after a short catch near the sideline, the next one came on the final play of practice with a pop on Hershel Dennis.
