Another practice is in the books, so let's take a look back at today's events through the ever watchful eyes of Twitter.
Kugbila still on the sidelines
The rookie offensive lineman still hasn't been able to shake a hamstring injury that has kept him out of the majority of offseason activities.
As far as his status, Joe Person pulls out a familiar quote from the past:
Hopefully that day comes soon, because Big Ku needs all the reps he can get.
Star and Short impressing the veterans
Our first two picks are looking good so far in camp, at least according to one fellow lineman:
Hardy said after a few early bumps, Star and KK played like they were the first team today.— Jonathan Jones (@jjones9) July 30, 2013
Veterans get the day off
A few veterans got the day off today:
Dwan Edwards and Steve Smith not in pads. Likely vet day off for those two— Jonathan Jones (@jjones9) July 30, 2013
Kalil has day off. Hangartner in at center. Garry Williams at RG— Jonathan Jones (@jjones9) July 30, 2013
No need to worry about Steve Smith. It's actually good that he got the day off, because that gave other WRs the chance to run reps with the first team.
Smith sitting today. First team WRs? LaFell and Armanti— Jonathan Jones (@jjones9) July 30, 2013
Of course, there's also a down side to Smitty having the day off:
Looking at this receiving corps when Smith is out, you realize these other guys are all complementary pieces.— Joe Person (@josephperson) July 30, 2013
Cam's bad day
It's just the first week of camp so there's no need for real concern, but word out of Spartanburg is that Cam didn't have a good day today.
Cam not real sharp today.— Joe Person (@josephperson) July 30, 2013
GM Dave Gettleman doesn't seem to be too worried about it though:
RT @josephperson: Asked Dave Gettleman whether Cam is QB to build future on. After a long pause, he said "Yes, but now it's time to win."— Jonathan Jones (@jjones9) July 30, 2013
The secondary is one of the position groups where 3/4 of the starting spots are up in the air. At this point, the only confirmed starter we know of is Charles Godfrey at free safety. Right now, anything goes for the other three spots.
Joe Person shares who he thinks the starting group would be based on how things are going in camp right now:
Speaking of the cornerbacks, have you ever wondered if Ron Rivera likes Captain Munnerlyn? If you just said yes, you're in luck.
Know how you can tell Rivera likes Captain? He's always joking on/with him, directly or through the media.— Joe Person (@josephperson) July 30, 2013
You can now call yourself an informed fan.
And finally, here's your quote of the day from the Kraken:
Asked Hardy if he has a more realistic goal than doubling the NFL sack single season sack record: "You have a TV? Watch."— Jonathan Jones (@jjones9) July 30, 2013
That's it for today's camp recap. Stay tuned tomorrow for more updates from Spartanburg.
