Football ready for first fall scrimmage
Probable: Brandon Flowers (l. ankle tendonitis), Corey Gordon (neck), Richard Graham (r. hamstring), Josh Hyman (l. hamstring), D.J. Parker (l. shoulder), Carlton Weatherford (r. groin).
Questionable: John Graves (r. hamstring).
Out: Barry Booker (l. big toe), Andrew Bowman (r. knee), Eric Davis (l. hamstring), Mario Edwards (l. hamstring), Macho Harris (l. hamstring), Eddie Royal (r. hamstring).
Offensive lineman Graham had previously been questionable, but is going to try and give it a go on Saturday. Defensive tackle Booker was the only downgrade, as he is still in a boot treating his toe sprain. There is good news, however, for cornerback Harris and receiver/returner Royal. Hyatt said both are doing very well and each has begun to take reps in practice, but the staff is not ready to push them along prematurely.
