Rob: Kenjon Barner got a lot of chances and sure looked to be moving at full speed, as he continues to increase his workload following his concussion in early October. Josh Huff is working extensively [because of LT injury] with the first team, and the other bit of resulting depth chart shuffling seems to be that Nick Cole is up working with the "varsity offense" after spending stretches earlier this season with the scout team.
Ken: Offensive lineman C.E. Kaiser missed much of practice. He showed up at the same time James did. Kaiser, though, jumped right into drills and looked fine. He was not listed on the injury report.
Receiver Lavasier Tuinei attended practice as an onlooker. His left arm remains immobilized.

• Friday is Senior Day and John Hunt along with Adam Jude have articles that feature some of this year's Seniors. Here are a couple of quotes from each story.

Matthews said he knows just one thing about the Arizona game, whether it leads to the title game or not:
“I can’t go out with a loss.’’
Adam: “I know once I run out there and my mom and my dad and my two brothers are waiting for me at the 50-yard line, that’s when it’s going to soak in that this is my last time playing on this field,” Spencer Paysinger said. “You just have to focus on the game, but you do have it in the back of your head that (for) you and the other seniors, it’s your last time playing next to each other.
“So,” he added, “you want to play all-out.”
