Highlights: After a few days off, there were a couple guys huffing and puffing today. But De'Anthony Thomas certainly had his legs under him, breaking off at least three long gains on runs or short passes. … Cameron Hunt got to the second level for a block that sprung one of DAT's big plays. … Defensively, Tyrell Robinson had a nice hit for a "tackle" on a screen pass, and Reggie Daniels came up with an interception. Unofficially, I feel like Daniels could challenge the likes of Terrance Mitchell for the lead in practice interceptions this season. … Though a receiver wasn't able to make the catch, Jake Rodrigues had a great throw deep down the sideline, zipping it between two defensive backs.
