Monday practice notes

Monday’s practices are usually brisk in terms of length — an hour or so at the most.
But this one hit just about every other definition of brisk, as well, as the wind off the lake brought a fall chill to the proceedings.
And with the Huskies headed to what will be a full Notre Dame Stadium this weekend, the music was back.
Not back, however, was linebacker E.J. Savannah, who was in uniform but watched from the sidelines thanks to a troublesome foot injury, technically a plantar fasciitis. Coach Steve Sarkisian said at his Monday press conference that Savannah was having an MRI. Official word at practice was that the MRI was not yet back so there was no update on his condition. Cort Dennison took Savannah’s place working with the No. 1 defense.
Also still out was WR Devin Aguilar, recovering from a knee injury suffered last Wednesday. He spent the practice working out on the sidelines with a trainer, running and cutting on the turf, testing out the knee.
Otherwise, while there was the usual rotating on the defensive line and receiver, the starting lineups appeared unchanged from Saturday.
In other news. …
— With school starting this week, the roster can expand, But official word was that there were no new walk-ons as of yet.
— However, with school starting, two injured players are now back with the team — DT Chris Robinson and WR Vince Taylor. Robinson remains on crutches recovering from knee surgery while Taylor appeared to be doing some conditioning work.
— One notable change among the backups had Nick Wood working with the second team O-line at left guard in place of Morgan Rosborough, who worked with the scout team. Wood was in for 2-3 plays against Stanford when Senio Kelemete left with cramps. Nick Scott was also working with the scout team.
Demitrius Bronson appeared to be getting some significant work at TB, interesting in light of the fact he was the first TB mentioned by Sarkisian during his press conference Monday when he talked about wanting to rotate running backs more.
— The early weather forecast for Saturday in South Bend is 60 degrees and rain.
All for now.
