Training Camp Musings: July 25th


Today is the first practice of the 2008 training camp.  Even though the first practice just ended, there’s been a lot of news.

~Clint Session has been practicing with the first team at strongside linebacker.  Of course, it would be surprising for a rookie (Wheeler) to be starting there anyways.

~Peyton Manning did not report.  He has been ordered by his doctors to stay home so his knee doesn’t get re-infected.

~The Hefty Lefty and Gray have already had their first camp casualities.  Longtime practice squad QB Josh Betts and rookie Adam Tafralis both got cut.  That means there are only 3 QBs left, the number prior to the signings.

~Rudy Burgess, a return specialist/wide receiver, was also cut.  Surprising since we made a big effort to keep him from signing with the Jags, even giving him a large signing bonus.

~Reports are that Marvin has looked fine, and Roy Hall has been a standout once again.
