“It comes with the territory,” said Tate, who like Turner remained in Annapolis during his exile from practice. “You have to do your part. You have to be reliable. The team has to be able to depend on you, as well as the coaches. Everyone was depending on me to pass the PRT and I didn’t, so that comes along with it.”

Turner, too, is ready to move on after returning to the team.

“It was tough,” Turner said. “I definitely didn’t think I’d get punished this severe, but it’s in the past. It happened. I dealt with it. I worked out every day and I came prepared and I passed all my physical tests.”

Notes: Navy’s kicking competition is down to three, all are freshmen. Austin Grebe, David Reisner and Nick Sloan are listed as co-starters. Juniors Brynmor Hughes and Stephen Picchini are no longer on the depth chart, while sophomore Colin Amerau is listed only as a co-starter on kickoffs. … Senior Keegan Wetzel, previously the sole starter at outside linebacker, is tied on the depth chart with sophomore Obi Uzoma. … Sophomore safety Chris Ferguson, who was dropped into a co-starter role on last week’s depth chart, regained the outright job from senior Jerad Fehr.
