Rookie Max Unger is playing at left guard this three days of minicamp, and while he didn't ever find himself go to the ball as if he were the center, he did call for the huddle. Unger played tackle for two years at Oregon and center for two years. This is his first stint at guard.
Linebacker Aaron Curry worked with the first-unit defense that included Lawrence Jackson and Darryl Tapp at defensive ends, Colin Cole and Brandon Mebane as the tackles. Lofa Tatupu, Leroy Hill and Curry were the linebackers with Deon Grant and Brian Russell at safety, Ken Lucas and Marcus Trufant on the corners.
Players not participating in practice: CB Kelly Jennings (shoulder), FB Justin Griffith (knee), LB D.D. Lewis (knee), G Mike Wahle (shoulder), T Walter Jones (knee), WR Deion Branch (knee), DL Cory Redding and DE Patrick Kerney (shoulder).
The two players not on the field were DE Brandon Miller and WR Michael Bumpus were not seen. Bumpus is recovering from a broken bone he suffered in his foot. Miller underwent wrist surgery in Philadelphia on Friday morning, but is expected to be OK for training camp.
WR Nate Burleson practiced as part of the team drills and made a nice catch. His participation in the full practice bodes well for his ability to rebound quickly.
Linebacker Leroy Hill said he was very happy with the resolution and there was no sign that he was anything but extremely happy to have the contract negotiations worked out and a deal signed.
