The notes section from Morrison's post-practice article:



Quick hits

• Hubbard and Hendrickson had their way in one-on-ones, which included a little post-rep altercation with D’Ante Smith. Nothing materialized, but plenty of dog-days-of-camp chatter during the most physical session yet.

• Cordell Volson had a few reps in one-on-ones that were exactly the kind of rough patches you expect from a fourth-round rookie, including a near whiff against Cam Sample.

• At one point as third-round pick Zach Carter was enjoying a string of impressive reps in one-on-ones, defensive line coach Marion Hobby sent him back for one more and fired out, “beat his ass again!”

• Joseph Ossai continues to show his explosiveness off the edge and looks ready to live up the expectations built in his preseason debut last year.

• In the receiver/DB one-on-ones, rookie Cam Taylor-Britt had a second consecutive rough practice. The second-round pick allowed receptions to Trenton Irwin and Kendric Pryor and got beaten deep by Kwamie Lassiter only to have Allen overthrow the undrafted rookie receiver. With Apple sitting out, undrafted rookie Allan George got some first-team reps ahead of Taylor-Britt, but Anarumo tried to deflect any meaning behind that, saying, “Just how practice went today. Don’t read into that one. They’re both still competing.”

• Rookie first-round pick Dax Hill had great coverage against Irwin on a deep pass and knocked the ball loose at the last second. He also had a PBU against Chase, although he might have come over the receiver’s back as an official was discussing the play with him afterward.

• Lassiter had the most impressive catch in the session, hauling in a short cross from Allen despite Hood holding one of his arms on what would have been an obvious pass interference call.

• The Evan McPherson train keeps on rolling as the kicker went six-for-six on field goals of 45, 49, 50, 53, 53 and 54 yards. Special teams coordinator Darrin Simmons mixed up the battery on those attempts, with Clark Harris snapping to holder Drue Chrisman, and Cal Adomitis snapping to Kevin Huber.
