Notes From Spring Practice: Day 4
"They came back pretty good," Kelly said. "We're relatively healthy right now, so we've got a lot of guys running around and we were running at a pretty good clip today."
The one significant injury of note is the one to senior defensive end Terrell Turner. Turner was seen on crutches with a cast on his foot during Monday's practice. When asked if Turner would return to action this spring, Kelly simply stated, "I don't think so."
Despite the loss of Turner, the defense flexed it's muscle and held the offense in check for most of the day. Kelly mentioned that he was pleased with the defense's tempo and their knack for being around the ball on Monday. Sophomore Ricky Heimuli was his disruptive self once again from his defensive tackle position, while linebackers Boseko Lokombo and Michael Clay each had picks for the defense (Clay unofficially notched two). Redshirt freshman cornerback Terrance Mitchell was in the pilfering mood as well, intercepting quarterback Darron Thomas during one particular sequence during 11-on-11 team drills.
"Terrance Mitchell keeps showing up," Kelly said. "He showed up again today with his interception and he's starting to make some plays."
Spring drills resume Wednesday morning inside the Moshofsky Center at 8:35. Practices are open to the general public.
