Thursday practice notes

Just back from the portion of practice open to the media and the big news might have been seeing cornerback Byron Davenport in full uniform. The team was in full pads for the first time this year.
Davenport didn’t look anywhere near 100 percent, as he was visibly slow during backpedal drills and other warmup stuff. But the mere fact he was out there seems to be good news.
Davenport is still struggling with a hamstring injury suffered two days ago and the actual prognosis remains unclear.
We saw what was the starting unit as this was another split practice and there didn’t appear to be any change to the starting O-line.
Coach Tyrone Willingham addressed that topic during his news conference today, as well, saying that the changes could last into the season. “I don’t think there is anyone who can say that we had the all-conference offensive line last year, so we’ve got to pick up that,” he said.
RB Louis Rankin was again the only Gold Jersey wearer, symbolizing solid play in practice the day before.
There were also a few visitors at practice today, including former UW coach Jim Lambright, who talked a while with Willingham during warmups, as well as former Seahawk Ray Roberts.
Willingham also praised freshman RB Brandon Yakaboski during his media briefing today, saying that he didn’t want to call him a surprise but that “he has showed himself well. … He looks physical and seems to run well and seems to have vision.”
