The Morning Fix

. I think he’s a big, physical fullback, who’s obviously in the past has shown really good run ability in the year when he had a chance to carry the ball when they had an injury. With that being said, he’s very clear, we’re very clear, he’s coming in to be our fullback, first and foremost. He has real good leadership qualities. He’s been part of a successful college program, successful NFL program with Baltimore around professionals and great players. He’s excited to be here and I’m excited that he’s here. He’s going to come into the mix and be part of the competition and hopefully raise everybody’s level of play.”

“We’ve been kind of a skeleton crew here, basically practicing with 61 or so guys, which isn’t a normal camp number even in past years,” coach Todd Haley said. “From a numbers standpoint, yes. From a real training camp standpoint … not quite yet. But we’re adding little pieces each day. I know the coaches would like it to be going a little faster, but we’re adjusting as we go along.

DE Glenn Dorsey left the field on a cart, after it looked like he injured his left knee in a defensive line-offensive line drill. Essentially what happens is three offensive linemen come off the ball and try to move the defensive lineman out of his spot. The defensive guy has to read the blockers and react to them, or hold his ground if they are coming right off the ball. Dorsey and rookie OT avid Mims tangled. Dorsey was off balance and Mims wheeled him to the ground and it appeared Dorsey’s left foot stayed in the turf as his body was twisted. He walked away from the drill to the medical tent, stripping of his knee brace as he walked. Hopefully for Dorsey that brace saved him from a very serious injury.
