NOOOOO!!!!! OK, so this isn't as bad as if we were in fall practice, but it can't be good seeing Tony Stevens - one of the players expected to compete for the Sammie Coates role on this year's team - in a boot and a scooter. Hopefully Gus' press conference will clear this up a bit, so read on!

Other than that, there weren't many big things. Raashed Kennion wasn't at practice according to Joel Erickson. There are other injured sitting aside or limited, as well. For the full practice observations from the beat (which don't vary much in detail) you can check the below links:

Serious enough to be in a boot with a scooter. Hopefully it's still something minor, though.
