The Washington Times - August 11, 2008, 03:40PM

First off, an apology for the massive server issues that continue to plague things around the blog. It’s made for a frustrating day on a lot of fronts. On the flip side, if everything holds up, I’ll be blogging deep into the night this evening to help make up for it.

Four quick notes before getting back to my dead tree edition story tomorrow on Jordan Steffy


* Friedgen said Steffy and Chris Turner are “about even” in the quarterback race. He’d like to make a call by Saturday.

* Davin Meggett has passed Morgan Green for No. 2 on the depth chart at tailback.

* Redshirt freshman offensive lineman Joe Faiella has a partially torn left Achilles tendon and will be out for the next three weeks. That would certainly explain his absence from Saturday’s scrimmage. Among the guys with minor injuries sitting out this morning: Mack Frost, Trey Covington and Nolan Carroll.

* Would love to be able to spit out a mailbag or two in the next few weeks (server issues permitting, of course). Feel free to send any mid-camp questions to me and I’ll be sure to get them on the blog.

More in a bit (hopefully).
