    • The staff is hopeful that this will be the first week that DeVonte Holloman will get to practice since missing previous practices with a sore hamstring. While he has been out Justin Durant, Anthony Hitchens, Dontavis Sapp and Orie Lemon have been filling in. I believe that this is Holloman’s job to lose once he gets back into the mix. He is just too talented and has the instincts to be the best option to replace Sean Lee. They staff has been very cautious with his injury for the reason that they do not want it to carry over to training camp.
    • When Scott Linehan has worked with a true fullback during practice, his first option has been Tyler Clutts instead of J.C. Copeland. I have said this all along, when the pads come on, this will be Copeland’s time to shine. Clutts is ahead of Copeland when it comes to having a working knowledge of the scheme and a better feel for what he has to do assignment-wise. As we head toward training camp practices in Oxnard, California, this will be a battle to keep an eye on because this might not be a roster spot that is guaranteed.
    • Rookie Terrance Mitchell has yet to make an appearance in these practices due to the fact that Oregon is on the Quarter System and he will not be able to take part in these activities until minicamp practices start. Mitchell did get some work during the rookie minicamp but in talking with several members of the front office staff, they are not concerned with him missing this practice time from what they had seen from his ability to pick up on the scheme and retain information. In his absence, Tyler Patmon and Deshaun Phillips have been the rookie corners that have been getting work.

    Is he going to be a PUP guy? I hope not. Was looking forward to seeing him in preseason.

    I'm curious about the medical condition that needs time to heal.
