Russo getting back in action

I talked to Anthony Russo this morning and he told me he was making quick progress on his recovery from a broken pinky and would “definitely” be playing in the opener against Syracuse.
Just how quick he seems to be progressing was evident in the opening stages of the afternoon practice as Russo was in full uniform and running through plays and catching passes.
His hand is still heavily wrapped and the stitches don’t come out for a few more days, but he said he plans to get back to full activity as quickly as possible.
“I’m drinking a lot of milk trying to get the bones strong,” he said.
He said he took the wrap off his hand Wednesday so he could catch a few passes.
“Me being stubborn I tested it and took it off and caught one or two easy ones,” he said. “It didn’t hurt at all.”
As for the rest of what we saw, Chad Macklin was back with the first offensive line, which looked like this from left to right — Cody Habben, Ryan Tolar, Juan Garcia, Casey Bulyca and Macklin.
The second line looked like this — Ben Ossai, Morgan Rosborough, Gregory Christine, Matt Sedillo and Erik Berglund. I also saw Jordan White-Frisbee sub in for Rosborough and Ryan Bush for Christine, meaning those players could be 2A and 2B at those spots, as coach Tyrone Willingham said the other day in reference to JWF.
DT Wilson Afoa was still in red nursing his shoulder injury.
The four players in gold were FB Paul Homer, DE Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, CB Roy Lewis and FS Jason Wells.
Check back for more later from Willingham’s post-practice briefing.
