Highlights: Mariota made a couple nice connections with Darren Carrington during situational work, and had a touchdown to Byron Marshall during 7-on-7 in the red zone. … Ifo Ekpre-Olomu broke up a Mariota pass in the end zone early in the day, and Reggie Daniels broke up a pass from Alie to Brown late in the morning. … Alie’s deep ball to Loyd was a heck of a play. The protection broke down, so Alie looked to run, but then he thought again, dropped back and unleashed the long ball that Loyd hauled in after shaking loose from the coverage.
