Defense steps up in WSU's first practice of day

COUGARS

Just a quick post after Washington State's morning workout. Title the first practice of the day "When The Defense Attacked." Probably the best workout of camp for that side of the ball, especially in the back seven, where there were, seemingly, more pass deflections than the entire last couple weeks combined. The day was also a bit contentious, with at least three decent scraps breaking out between offensive and defensive players. Heck, the last play of the practice, held in full pads and featuring "thud" team work (no tackling), ended with an after-the-whistle battle. As for injuries, cornerback Daniel Simmons returned to practice off his hamstring strain, but defensive end Adam Coerper missed his second consecutive day with a hammy and Kristoff Williams watched with a left knee bruise. How long either will be out is still unknown. ... We'll be back after the afternoon workout. Until then ...
