From Chris: Redshirt freshman linebacker Boseko Lokombo had another huge day this afternoon as he was seemingly in on every big play during 11-on-11 team drills. Lokombo, who is battling for a starting position at SAM linebacker with Josh Kaddu, had maybe the hit of the fall thus far when he decleated sophomore walk-on running back Anthony Blake on a pass play over the middle.
From Rob: I thought Costa was very accurate tonight, which isn’t to say he was mistake-free. Darron Thomas threw an early interception to John Boyett, which isn’t to say he was bad this afternoon. Entering fall camp I was of the impression Costa was the leader, over the weekend I felt Thomas had an edge, and after the last two days I’m back to thinking Costa takes the first snap against New Mexico. Which is really to say, I have no idea.
• Ken Goe notes that LaMichael James returned to practice yesterday.
“Initially, I didn’t know what was going on, but it turns out I just hyper-extended it,” he said. “It’s still kind of tight. But I know if I sit out of practice, then I’m not getting any better. I need to get out there and practice.”
Even though the knee wasn’t completely 100 percent, James said he was happy to be on the field.
• Ken Goe also spoke to Chip Kelly about the QB's and the coach would like to see more consistency but in the end, maybe it doesn't matter.
