In what has been a pretty boring training camp, Friday morning's practice may have been the most boring practice yet. Kimo von Oelhoffen and Plaxico Burress returned to action, but Dallas Davis and Mike Logan remain out.
The only good thing about Logan's injury is that it is giving the team a good look at some young safeties. Chris Hope and Erik Totten both show promise. While Hope is a lock to make the team, Totten could be a surprise keeper. He's on the small side for a safety at 5-9 and 188, but every time I see the kid, he's asking somebody a question. While a lot of these guys go to the sideline and jaw with the other guys or sit on their helmet, Totten's looking over Tim Lewis' shoulder at the play calling or asking one of the vets about a coverage.
The team worked extensively on its red zone offense in 7-on-7 drills. But with Kordell Stewart still out, things really looked rough. The best play came when Antwaan Randle El beat Hope in the right corner for a TD from Tee Martin. Troy Edwards also had a nice TD catch. There weren't many TDs to be had, however. You can't read too much into that, though. The team doesn't run the ball during the 7-on-7s.
