Now that Nebraska football’s heading into the 2014 season without Charles Jackson, Michael Rose-Ivey, LeRoy Alexander and Adam Taylor (broken ankle), we saw some changes in practice on the offensive side of the ball. Here are the other highlights of the Huskers’ first practice of the day, this one in half pads:
- Quarterback Tommy Armstrong worked out in a green no contact jersey for the first time this fall.
- Sets with fullback Andy Janovich were worked on for the first time as well. Harrison Jordan worked with the second team.
- Running back Terrell Newby sat out this session.
- Wide receiver Glenn Irons beat out defensive back Byerson Cockrell twice in a drill featuring three targets on four defenders.
- David Knevel continues to work at left tackle in place of Alex Lewis. Lewis stretched but didn’t wear a helmet.
- Defensive end Randy Gregory spent some time picking on kickers and giving high fives.
- Defensive tackle Maliek Collins broke through protection and swatted a field goal attempt.
- Cornerback Daniel Davie continues to work with the first team defense.
- Safety Nathan Gerry’s looking very versatile. Could be used as an extra linebacker in light of Rose-Ivey’s injury.
- Cornerback Josh Mitchell helped out fellow cornerback Trai Mosley after drill. Mitchell is bigger at this point.
- Kickers Mauro Bondi and Drew Brown both were more consistent hitting kicks over 40 yards.
- Punter Sam Foltz kicked only to wide receiver Kenny Bell.
