Andrei Lintz follows own path to WSU


A quick post before we hit practice later tonight. We have two items for tomorrow's S-R, a feature on a player we believe will have a breakout season for Washington State, sophomore tight end Andrei Lintz, and our first look at the Oklahoma State opener. You can read them on the links. ... UPDATE: We're back from practice, which lasted about an hour and a half under the lights at Rogers Field. For more, read on ...

• It's game week, and that has a way of healing people. Aire Justin was back at practice, which helps the secondary depth, but Nolan Washington was still taking it slow. Chantz Staden was doing a little more, as were Kristoff Williams and Toni Pole but Jared Byers was still sidelined. Logwone Mitz, who had a death in the family last week, was still gone. ... As for the play on the field, it was enthusiastic, more so than usual after an off day. The elixir of game prep must have worked some sort of magic. ... Marquess Wilson once more made a catch that seemed impossible, beating two defenders to grab a seemingly too-long Jeff Tuel pass during the seven-on-seven skelly drill . ... A couple of plays later, last year's freshman star, Gino Simone, dove full out to catch another Tuel throw. ... And that, folks, were the highlights. ... WSU returns to the practice field tomorrow at 4 p.m. and the pads will be back on.


• That's all for tonight. We'll be back in the morning. Until then ...
