Another day, another practice in the books. Just like yesterday, the big news of the day was Herzlich's absence from practice.
Here is the BCEagles.com release:
All eyes are still on senior Mark Herzlich who did not practice for the second-straight day. The Eagles could have one of the most formidable linebacker corps in the country when he returns to the field. Herzlich and sophomore Luke Kuechly are both All-Americans while senior Mike Morrissey and junior Will Thompson are battling for the third starting spot.
According to the Herald's On Campus blog, Herz was off getting an MRI on his injured right foot. They are reporting that there is a small stress fracture on the foot. The Heights further suggests that Herzlich will likely not participate in Friday's full-contact practice or Saturday's team scrimmage.
Blaudschun's article focuses on whether Ifeanyi Momah will play a dual role on both offense and defense this year. Apparently in the spring, Spaz thought Momah could help out more on defense. Now, there are definitely a few depth concerns at WR, too. It sounds like a game of tug-of-war between Tranquill and McGovern, with Spaz playing peacemaker. It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out.
"We’ve got a different team from last year and a different type of swagger. First-year players last year are coming back with experience. A lot of us have been in the film room in the offseason. And another [thing] I noticed is the leadership. We have more leadership on the team this year. When guys mess up, even if they’ve been playing for a long time, somebody will get on them. You don’t want to let your teammates down. I just think if everyone does their job this year, we can go real far. Our goal is to win every game this year, and I think we can do that."
Careful throwing around the S-word, Montel. I think that's trademarked by the U. Or Old Spice. One of the two.
