Team's health improving
Good news on the injury front.
Just about everyone who has missed time in the past week or so was back out this morning for a padded practice. That includes tackle Luke Petitgout, receiver Michael Clayton, linebacker Barrett Ruud and safety Sabby Piscitelli.
Oh, and guard Arron Sears was back today after missing Sunday's workout. We think that was more about rest than an actual injury. Sears had a minor offseason knee surgery and appears to have healed nicely. But doctors are still careful about him taking too much of a pounding.
He was back with the first team today and appears to be solidifying his place with the starting unit. The starting offensive line, if the season started today, likely would be Petitgout (LT), Sears (LG), John Wade (C), Davin Joseph (RG) and Jeremy Trueblood (RT). That, of course, is subject to change. But based on who's lining up right now, that's our best guess.
