There was only one practice today @ 3:00pm, full pads, and it was a scorcher prompting Fox to call an end to practice 20 minutes early. DT Ed Johnson was hauled off the field due to a heat related issue, but it was only precautionary. Here are Steve Reed's Ten Observations of the day, and Gantt's practice summary Wrapping up a hot practice. Here are a few tweets from Gantt and Reed throughout the practice:
-carolinagrowl WRs Brandon LaFell and Wallace Wright are getting some time with the ones early in practice. Jarrett and Moore are running with the twos.
-daringantt David Gettis climbs the ladder to catch Cantwell pass. He's come on lately. Not sure if numbers allow him a spot on the 53 though.
-daringantt Duke Robinson with ones during team run.
-daringantt Several nice catches for TE Gary Barnidge today
-daringantt For a guy running with the 3s and 4s, DT Corvey Irvin has been pretty active. He has the quickness they need inside.
-carolinagrowl Don't see too many mistakes by LB jon Beason but he just let TE Dante Rosario go wide open down the middle for a TD. Part of learning a new position
-daringantt Kind of surprised they went full in this heat, but Fox appeared to dial it back a bit. Finishing up with some special teams now.
and finally one from Lafell...
Blafell1 BOY IM ON... (...not sure here but I hope he's talking about his receiving game)
