Trufant back on field — other early practice notes

Back in the press room from a few minutes out at the field, and the big news is that Desmond Trufant is in uniform and on the field.
This is the first practice for the freshman CB from Wilson High in Tacoma, who had to retake a class to replace one that was denied at the last minute by the NCAA Clearinghouse.
He can’t be in any sort of pads for two days, so he is only in helmet, jersey, etc., while the rest of the team is in helmets and shoulder pads.
Here’s a shot of Trufant working with cornerbacks coach Demetrice Martin (they are the two in back).

In other personnel news. …
Victor Aiyewa remains out but Jason Wells was back in pads, indicating he is recovering from the strain to his Achilles suffered the other day. However, add a new safety to the injury list as Greg Walker was in red, though not sure with what or how serious — he was walking around fine.
— RB Johri Fogerson, who sprained an ankle late in Wednesday’s practice, was in pads and appeared to be fine. OT Nick Scott, who also sprained an ankle, also was in pads.
— In a new injury, G Morgan Rosborough had his left arm in a sling, so not sure what the situation is there. He was riding a stationary bike as practice began. OT Terence Thomas also remains in a boot on his left foot, so the depth on the OL is beginning to get a little thin. I count 11 scholarship guys today with those two out and 13 overall.
— FB Paul Homer was in pads though I couldn’t tell you how active he would be in practice today.
— With Walker and Aiyewa out, David Batts appeared to be getting a lot of reps at safety. He had worked primarily as a corner the last few days.
More later.
