Kevin Hobbs picks Charlie Frye -- 7.30.2008 A.M. practice

Posted by Danny O'Neil

The morning practice ended with a spirited scrimmage between the third-unit offense and third-unit defense. The first series ended when quarterback Charlie Frye was intercepted by cornerback Kevin Hobbs who jumped in front of Logan Payne to pick off the pass.

Hobbs ran downfield until he was tackle by T.J. Duckett, who made a pretty punishing hit.

The offense moved the ball well on the next series, getting inside the 10 before three plays stalled with a short run by Owen Schmitt, an incomplete pass and then a play in which Frye was flushed from the pocket.

Other notes from the morning practice:

  • LB D.D. Lewis made a great play in coverage, breaking up a pass intended for FB David Kirtman, who was coming out of the backfield. Lewis also was part of a big collision involving RB Julius Jones.

  • Jones is not shy about contact. For the second consecutive day he lowered his shoulder and turned into a collision. On Tuesday, it was Jordan Babineaux. On Wednesday, it was Lewis he ran into.

  • DT Larry Tripplett got penetration on a couple of plays, including the one that ended with Jones colliding with Lewis. The competition for the No. 5 defensive tackle is one of the hot spots on the roster with Tripplett, Howard Green and Marcus Tubbs part of that mix.

  • TE Jeb Putzier did not practice. Update, 2 p.m.: Putzier was out with a sore hip. Neither did LB Wesly Mallard (hamstring), C Chris Spencer (shoulder), WR Courtney Taylor (hamstring), DE Patrick Kerney (calf) and C Chris Gray (back). WR Deion Branch, DT Marcus Tubbs and P Ryan Plackemeier remain on the physically unable to perform list and LB Will Herring has a non-football injury.

    wow, that's a pretty good DT battle. Hopefully Tubbs comes back healthy to make things really interesting.
