Monday PM notes

Not a whole lot to report.
The biggest thing this time of year is injuries — even in the non-pads practices, little things can crop up that can cost players a lot of time, ala Kenny James a couple of years ago.
So far, so good as coach Tyrone Willingham said the team made it through its second practice of the season today without any new significant hurts.
Willingham said he plans to again award gold jerseys for standout play in practice but has yet to do so this season.
He also addressed the team’s scholarship number as UW appears to be at 77 if everyone on the roster is labeled correctly. Willingham said it was at “77 or 78.” He said that’s a few below where would optimally like it to be, though he said it’s rare that a team is really at its full limit of 85 for long.
“You want to get to 85 but you want you want to get there the right way,” he said. He said there were a few walk-ons on the team who could be awarded scholarships, with OT Erik Berglund, a former scholarship player, one obvious candidate.
He also said one of the new walk-on kickers could earn a scholarship at some point, though the fact that the team already has three kickers on scholarship might give some cause for greater thought on that, one would think.
After the punters got in some good work Sunday it was the kickers’ turn today. Willingham didn’t go into detail on who did what but did say that “there’s some potential there.”
The team will hold one practice again tomorrow afternoon, though this one will include the whole group together at once instead of split.
