- Sam Bradford is completely cleared for everything and is 100 percent ready to go. He confirmed he will not wear a knee brace this season and doesn’t see why he wouldn’t be ready to go for the season opener in Atlanta.
- Chip stated barring any setbacks Bradford will play in the preseason game…remains to be seen how much he will play.
- New QB coach Ryan Day will split up the reps amongst the quarterbacks (Bradford, Sanchez, Tebow, Barkley)
- DeMarco Murray did not participate in any of the team drills today. Doesn’t really seem to be much to that but stay tuned.
- Sproles was getting the backup reps in replace of Murray not Ryan Mathews.
- Sproles was also 1st team on kickoff returns.
- Starting group of wide receivers consisted of Jordan Matthews, Josh Huff and Riley Cooper pretty much all practice.
- Rookie first round pick Nelson Agholor ran with the 2’s.
- Allen Barbre and Matt Tobin were the starting guards today. Tobin played the right guard spot.
- Backup group included Andrew Gardner, Julian Vandevelde, David Molk, Kevin Graft and Dennis Kelly.
- Recently acquired John Moffit was third team OG.
- Kiko Alonso and DeMeco Ryans were the 1st team inside linebackers for today’s practice.
- Mychal Kendricks ran with the second team.
- Chip also stood behind Kendricks saying he is not going anywhere “you can put that in ink.”
- Jacorey Shepherd got all the 1st team reps at the slot corner in place of recently traded Brandon Boykin.
- Louis Riddick of ESPN was at practice today and raved about Shepherd tweeting “good feet & movement patterns.”
- Chip also mentioned there are various candidates in play for the slot position and for now Walter Thurmond will stay at safety.
- He also spoke about Nolan Carroll and how they received multiple offers for him, but will not be moving him.
- He is looking to keep 5 corners on the roster.
- The 5th round draft pick for Brandon Boykin acquired from Pittsburgh can become a 4th rounder if he plays 60% of the snaps.
- Greg Hardy is STILL a dumbass!!!
