The highlight of Wednesday? How could it not be center Lyle Sendlein booting a field goal — the only player among the 10 that tried — to “win” the day’s competition for the offense at the end of today’s OTA? (To be fair, cornerback Michael Adams did have his final attempt glance off the left upright in a last chance to tie the score). Guys like Matt Leinart, Adrian Wilson and Calais Campbell need to work on their form, I think.
Otherwise, it seemed like a mostly defensive day. The defense stood out to me more often. Wilson, playing centerfield, made a pick of Leinart as Leinart tried to get a pass to Larry Fitzgerald. Adams broke up a long pass to Fitz (although Fitz looked like he was insisting afterward Adams was getting a little too physical for the rules).
Offensive lineman Rex Hadnot did tweak a knee during the workout, and while he did leave on a cart, the injury isn’t believed to be serious. Rookie tight end Jim Dray also was hobbling around and he said he too tweaked a knee, but he would be fine (it’s the knee he did not have major reconstructive surgery on in college).
As players are moved around, at one point Trumaine McBride was working with Michael Adams with the first string ahead of Greg Toler (DRC remained sidelined with his bad toe). And rookie WR Stephen Williams rallied from an early drop during drills (DRC got on his case from the sideline) to make an impressive leaping grab during 7-on-7.
I’ll have some more notes later posted on the home page.
