During a quarterback-receiver goal line drill, Greg Prator made a toe-tapping catch in the back of the end zone after twice tipping the ball to himself with one hand. But he was one-upped later on by Chris Jordan.
In one-on-ones, Jordan beat cornerback Alex Teems down the left sideline and caught Gary Rogers' bomb in stride with one hand.
On defense, Eric Frampton looked particularly sharp, coming close to several interceptions and showing great anticipation.
On one play, Frampton was in one-on-one coverage with Michael Bumpus, made an early jump on Bumpus' quick slant route, and knocked down Josh Swogger 's pass.
During the 11-on-11 scrimmage, Bursey scored on an interception that fell into his lap after Brandon Gibson allowed a pass to bounce off his chest.
A PAIR OF individual battles garnered attention during practice.
Cornerback Omowale Dada and receiver Greg Prator had been engaging in some good-natured trash-talk through most of the day. When their one-on-one matchup finally came, Dada engaged the bigger receiver in a strong bump off the line. Prator recovered, ran a fly route and caught the pass, although Dada wasn't given much support from teammates, who neglected to yell that the ball was in the air.
On the line, offensive tackle Charles Harris and defensive end Mkristo Bruce went at in individual blocking drills. On one play, Harris drew cheers when he rode Bruce into the ground as the speedy end tried to slip past. On the next play, Bruce bull-rushed Harris and knocked the 300-pounder flat on his back.
NONE OF THE STARTERS who missed Thursday's practice were in pads Friday.
Receiver Jason Hill (dental surgery) was back on the field, but did not suit up. Linebacker Scott Davis (sprained foot) was free to walk around without the cast he wore the previous day, and defensive end Adam Braidwood (elbow sprain) appeared on the field without the ice pack he wore Thursday. Coach Bill Doba said he expects all three back by Monday.
