Tuesday Practice Report
July 28th, 2009 - 12:43pm by Gray Caldwell


Tuesday brought a lot less rain but a few more players to practice at Dove Valley.

D.J. Williams and Wesley Woodyard joined the festivities — two more veterans recovering from injuries — after missing yesterday’s session with flu-like symptoms.

Brandon Marshall and Lucas Taylor missed the morning session, which Head Coach Josh McDaniels said was a coaching decision due to soreness.


The morning session was a walkthrough format, and there will be another practice this afternoon from 3-5 p.m. MDT. Check this blog afterwards for more practice notes.

For now, here are some quick hits from Tuesday morning:

Ryan Clady, Jabar Gaffney, LaMont Jordan, Matt McChesney and J’Vonne Parker were a few of the players spotted walking around Dove Valley today. The veterans are not required to begin practice until Friday’s training camp kickoff.
The return of Woodyard and Williams meant rookie Lee Robinson and linebackers coach Don Martindale got a little more company. On the other hand, the absence of Marshall and Taylor meant Kenny McKinley and Nate Swift got some extra attention from receivers coach Adam Gase, as they were the only wide outs to participate in practice.
Ryan Torain was still the lone running back with coach Bobby Turner, working on different formations and practicing routes out of the backfield.
The rookies in the secondary worked with defensive backs coach Ed Donatell and defensive coordinator Mike Nolan for much of practice. They focused on play calls, going in motion and calling audibles.
McDaniels watched the quarterbacks — who you might have noticed yesterday are wearing new orange practice jerseys — for much of practice. He pulled rookie Tom Brandstater aside on several occasions to give him pointers on his footwork.
Now here are pictures from the morning session, check back later this evening for tidbits and pictures from the afternoon session.
