SEEN AND HEARD
There’s always one assistant coach with offbeat drills. For a while, it was Norv Turner’s special teams coach, Pete Rodriguez. Later, it was tight ends coach Mike Pope. These days, that man is defensive line coach Greg Blache. Yesterday’s wackiness had Blache’s charges smacking the padded goal post and then putting a spin move on it as if it were a blocker. Not surprisingly, the D-linemen won every time.
LARON LANDRY (HOT)
The sixth pick in the draft didn’t look like a rookie after missing the previous six practices during a holdout.
STEPHON HEYER (HOT)
The rookie free agent from Maryland is getting a serious shot at winning a backup job while four-time Pro Bowl offensive left tackle Chris Samuels is sidelined with a sprained knee.
CLINTON PORTIS (COLD)
The No. 1 running back’s return to health lasted all of six practices before he needed to sit out with tendinitis in his knee.
