Fullback/tailback Brian Leonard, who was recently acquired in a trade with the St. Louis Rams, is getting a lot of carries at tailback, which could be a prelude to training camp and the preseason. Leonard also caught the ball well out of the backfield this week.
Here's to hoping that this doesn't turn into a nagging problem.
During Friday’s practice, rookie wide receiver Kenny Britt seemed to be frustrated Friday after a bit of trouble with his hamstring. Fisher said Britt, although slowed for the later portion of the day, still practiced well during team drills .
"I think he warmed up well, you know, he got a lot of work done. He’s just getting better each day," Fisher said. "He slowed with a little hamstring, but he’s back and he’s working. He ran a couple good routes on the back side where he wasn’t primary and he gets excited about that."
Multiple future Scarlet Knights competed (click for pictures) in Delaware's Blue-Gold game. Duron Harmon and Jamil Merrell are mentioned in the News-Journal's story, while the Newark Post includes a Kyle Sullivan cameo, and notes that Jamil was "named the game’s outstanding lineman". WDEL has video (both are mentioned, but no Jamal or Harmon). Speaking of all-star contests, David Osei was on the Pennsylvania roster for Saturday's Big 33 all star game against Ohio. (Andres Morales's nickname is "Hoagie"? Guess we know why he's in the doghouse now.) None of the reports seem to have anything on Osei. There was a link to this Youtube video on Rivals, and he'd be #77 in blue.
