Scout-team scrimmage highlights: I’d mention that Danny Mattingly blew up a pass play with a blitz up the middle, but you’re probably tired of hearing his name in this space day after day. No?

Damion Hobbs reached the end zone twice on keepers, and Taylor Alie rolled to his left then threw back across the field into the end zone. … Juwaan Williams has been primarily a cornerback, but he took some safety reps this morning. Typical broadening of a young player’s skill set, I presume.
