JASON TUCKER (SB): Repeatedly schooled defensive backs in one-on-one drills, showing he's already in regular-season form.

TONY TOMPKINS (Returner / SB): He hasn't had a chance to flash his speed returning punts/kicks in practice, but he's proving to have great hands in receiving drills.

AND MISSES

RHETT MCLANE (OL): In what could be a make-or-break campaign, the third-year Eskimo had to watch practice yesterday. "I was a little dehydrated (on Day 1)," said McLane. "I felt fine coming off the field (on Sunday), but I had a shower and I guess everything sort of started to tighten up." Although he felt fine yesterday, it was unclear if he would be allowed to practice today.

McLane is fighting with Tim Bakker for the starting centre spot.

JASON JOHNSON (QB): Battling for the No. 2 job, he hasn't looked sharp. Picked off twice in practice, he should have been intercepted on two other throws.

NOTES

In an interesting twist, import punter Rodney Williams will likely be allowed to kick field goals in the pre-season.

If he consistently nails field goals like he hammers punts, Sean Fleming could be in real trouble by the end of camp.

"The other day I asked (Williams) if he kicks field goals and he said 'Not really,'" recalled head coach Danny Maciocia.

"But then he lined up three (field goal attempts) at 60 yards and put two through the uprights. I don't see why we wouldn't give him that opportunity."

AT CLARKE TODAY: Practice: 9-11:10 a.m.
