Thursday scrimmage was the last before the team starts preparing for Oregon on Monday, and QB Jake Locker watched from the sideline. OC Tim Lappano said there was no sense in having him scrimmage and risk him re-injuring his left hamstring. So he warmed up and then let Ronnie Fouch take over.
Also, RB Chris Polk said his left shoulder hurt a bit, so he didn't take as many reps as he normally would (and if you're looking for insight on who the starting RB will be, no one gave it up on Friday. Lappano said there will be a three-running back rotation, but only went that far.) Brandon Johnson said he felt good during the scrimmage. Willie Griffin hurt his back and sat out practice this morning, but in talking to RB coach Steve Gervais it didn't seem serious.
DC Ed Donatell said he was initially disappointed with the line play in the scrimmage, but when he looked at it on video, left thinking the line did "fine." He reiterated that several players will be in the mix on the line, not just the starting four.
