Bucs: Louis Murphy's nice catch; night practice at Raymond James

Receiver Louis Murphy, running a drill in June’s minicamp, continues to impress at training camp.

Receiver Louis Murphy, running a drill in June’s minicamp, continues to impress at training camp.

Quote of the day

"Sometimes, it's not your wedding night and it's just a normal day that you go through."

Coach Lovie Smith on the perceived slow pace of Thursday's practice compared with Wednesday's chippy session

Play of the day

WR Louis Murphy, a graduate of St. Petersburg's Lakewood High and a former Florida Gators star, had another strong showing. It included a diving catch in the left corner of the end zone on a pass by Mike Glennon after beating S Kelcie McCray in a one-on-one drill.

Under the lights

The Bucs are pumped for tonight's practice at Raymond James Stadium (7:30), which is open to the public. "It's one thing to practice on the practice field," Smith said. "But when you go to the stadium, it's a different feel. So our players are excited about getting the feel for Raymond James Stadium."

Family affair

The coaching staff includes two interns for camp from the NFL's Bill Walsh Minority Coaching Fellowship. Connor Embree played flanker and returned punts for Kansas last season. Embree, who ranked fourth in the Big 12 in punt returns with an average of 11.4 yards, is the son of Bucs tight ends coach Jon Embree. Embree makes it four sons of current coaches on the staff. Smith's son Mikal is the safeties coach. Another son, Miles, is an intern as is Quinn Tedford (son of offensive coordinator Jeff). USF linebackers coach Raymond Woodie is the other Walsh intern.
