The CSU football team suited up in full pads on Tuesday and worked against scout teams for the second consecutive day to prepare for its opening game Sept. 2 at home versus Weber State.
While the offense worked on a few option plays, the defense used the scout team time to practice different blitz plays.
Also for the second straight day, senior cornerback Robert Herbert practiced with the second-team defense after asking to be demoted on Monday.
Play of the day: Going full contact against the first-team offense, sophomore linebacker Jeff Horinek picked up junior Kyle Bell’s fumble and returned it the distance for a defensive touchdown.
Quote of the day: “I play every night. I’m in 2011 right now in that game. It’s an honor to be an impact player, I like it a lot.” – Herbert on being an “impact player” in “EA Sports’ NCAA 2007” video game.
Injury Report: Linebacker Jake Pottorff was held out of practice again with a shoulder injury and will not be ready for action until next week, according to associate athletic director Gary Ozello.
