A quick afternoon special-teams practice. WR Courtney Taylor, RB Justin Forsett and LB Wesly Mallard were watching. Taylor and Mallard had hamstring muscles that tightened up during the morning workout. Not sure what's bothering Forsett, but he was watching in a baseball cap.
Ben Obomanu and Michael Bumpus caught punts during the latter part of the workout, and Bumpus had a hard time holding on. The former WSU receiver dropped several punts, including two in a row.
Ryan Plackemeier remains out, recovering from pectoral surgery. He's getting closer to coming back, said special teams coach Bruce DeHaven, but his absence certainly isn't helping him. The team wants to see more consistency from Plackemeier this season.

It's his job, No? That's why He's got that cute picture next to his name. I do appreciate the updates however, but if someone paid me what I'm paid to do now, to do what it is you do, I would do it in a heartbeat. Thanks for the updates.

Does Forsett even have a chance to make this team - how many backs do we have? I would say possibly for special teams but with history of us keeping a bunch of LB's, I don't know if any spots will remain for extra backs...I like Forsett but he may be cut.
Danny, you have any feel of Forsett's special teams chances, or will Wilson and Burleson continue to return kicks?
