Second day of practice

The highlight of Tuesday’s practice were sprints at the end of the session. Freshman Sam DeMartinis and Justin Cheadle showed they are a pair of athletic offensive lineman by still running fairly hard at the end of it. But the standout overall was freshman defensive tackle Cameron Jordan, who had his teammates buzzing by flying up and down the field despite his 6-4, 260 frame.

The best moment during seven-on-sevens came when a pass by Kyle Reed that was intended for Sean Young was tipped up in the air by safety Thomas DeCoud and intercepted by Syd’Quan Thompson.

Young had a good first two days of camp, but with the Bears’ marquee set of receivers, it may not matter how well a guy like that plays.

Several players are missing some practice time as summer class wrap up. Coach Jeff Tedford said the whole team should be wrapped up with classes by Thursday.

Redshirt freshman defensive lineman Derrick Hill missed his second straight practice because of back spasms. Tedford said the team will know more about the severity of his condition as soon as today.
