I wasn’t at practice Thursday, but here are some highlights from coach Sonny Dykes’ visit with reporters:
On how the team performed after a day off Wednesday: “We looked fast today. That’s what you want to see when you give a day off, is you want to see them come back and take advantage of it, let the bodies heal up a little bit and play fast, and we played fast.
“I’m very pleased with where we are this many practices in and our ability to move fast and play fast. I think it speaks volumes about our summer conditioning.”
Dykes said MLB Nick Forbes missed practice to see a doctor about his back, which has bothered him for more than a week. “We expect him to be out there more and more as we progress,” Dykes said.
There is no concrete update on safety Avery Sebastian, injured during Monday’s scrimmage. “Nothing new,” Dykes said. “He was out here at practice today and I think he’s feeling much better. We will just kind of see how he progresses. No timetable on his return.”
Dykes declined to cite a specific diagnosis and, when asked if Sebastian suffered a concission, said, “I don’t know. We’ll see … I think they’re still trying to get all that stuff diagnosed.”
