In the good news bad news department, linebacker Rico McCoy put a huge hit on running back Arian Foster that had both the defense and coach Fulmer excited. That's, of course, the good news. The bad news: Foster fumbled. Oh, and Erik Ainge threw an interception. That's bad. A friend who was at practice yesterday morning tells me that Eric Berry intercepted one of Ainge's passes, so maybe it was that one. That's good.
Eleven players are are in a scuffle for four, maybe five, positions in the wide receiver rotation, and Trooper Taylor says Saturday's scrimmage will be the final audition. You might find some indication of who the favorites are right now in Fulmer's response to a question about Ainge's adjustment to so many new guys. He mentioned five names in answering the question: "veterans" Lucas Taylor, Josh Briscoe, Austin Rogers, and Quintin Hanbock, and Florida State and junior college transfer Kenny O'Neal (RTT#17). Fulmer likes him his experience, he does.
