"It was a good workout. It wasn't a live practice, we were just in shorts. There was a lot of passing, and a lot of mental work," said Rodriguez. "A lot of minor injuries have slowed our progress down, but I feel good that we've gotten better, which is the big thing. We even got better from yesterday until today, and that's what we want to see"
"There will be several of guys who are held out of the scrimmage this afternoon. I'm more concerned about the young guys that are out who need the reps as opposed to some of our veterans," said Rodriguez.
"We're still waiting on the results from Bassler's knee," said Rodriguez. "We'll meet with the trainers this afternoon."
Due to the absence of Bassler (knee) and Garrett (ankle), redshirt freshman John Bradshaw is taking reps at tackle. Rodriguez also noted that Dan Mozes is capable of playing any position on the offensive line, should the injuries not get better.
"Everyday him and J.R. are getting some of their strength back. When we get done with camp and go to single practices, they'll get even more strength back," said Rodriguez. "(Adam), Pat, and J.R. are our top three guys. Everyday, each of them does something positive."
Later today, the team will hold an officiated scrimmage.
"They should be fresh, because we haven't had a lot of heat. This afternoon is going to be a big scrimmage for us, because we'll get a chance to look at some of our younger players, and see where everybody's at," summed up Rodriguez.
