Fiedler making progress



LAKE BUENA VISTA - Quarterback Jay Fiedler continues to make progress in his rehabilitation from shoulder surgery, but does not have a target date for joining practice.

Fiedler threw after practice Saturday, increasing the distance of his throws from short to intermediate length.

"It's coming. Every day I get out here it's improving,'' said Fiedler, acquired as a free agent when backup Luke McCown injured his knee during offseason workouts. "I took a day off (Friday) and that really helped get it fresh. I definitely took a step forward (Saturday)."

Fiedler has not had any setbacks.

"The next step is uncorking it and letting it loose," he said.
