The morning after the scrimmage, coach Jim Zorn had his players work for only about 90 minutes. They’re due back on the field at 3 p.m. on what figures to be the hottest day of camp.

The best news of the morning for Zorn was the return of starting cornerback Carlos Rogers for indiviudal drills. Rogers, who had been out a week with a strained calf, hopes to be ready for Thursday’s preseason opener at Baltimore.


Devin Thomas, who’s challenging to start at receiver, used individual drills to test the sore hamstring that had kept him out the past couple of days. Offensive tackles Stephon Heyer (knee) and Mike Williams (groin) and guard Randy Thomas (knee) all took some work.

Seventh-round draft choice Eddie Williams and rookie free agent defensive end J.D. Skolnitsky made their returns to full practice after missing almost all of camp with strained hamstrings.

The only players not practicing were reserve offensive linemen Jeremy Bridges and Rueben Riley with sprained ankles, starting receiver Santana Moss (hamstring) and running back hopeful Anthony Alridge, who sprained a toe during the scrimmage.
