– Also some notes from practice Tuesday (Keep in mind we media folk are currently being regulated to just 45 minutes of each workout before being ushered away).

– Dropped balls still seems to be an ever-plauging issue. Quite honestly, it really won’t matter which player ends up winning the quarterback battle if no one catches any passes.

WKU is still extremely thin at the wide receiver spot, and with Derrius Brooks moving over to cornerback, it gets even thinner. One player that caught my eye a bit this afternoon was true freshman wideout Donald Campbell. The Palmetto, Fla. product seemed as sure-handed as anyone during early-practice receiving drills – his routes also looked rather crisp.

– Players of note that weren’t taking part in drills this afternoon were senior linebacker Chris Bullard, redshirt freshman quarterback Courtney Dalcourt, senior linebacker Mike Gothard, Derrius Brooks, senior offensive lineman Preston King,  sophomore defensive lineman Korentheus Bailey and senior offensive lineman Derrick Elder.

Brooks missed his second straight day after sitting out Monday to due an illness – according to WKU coach Willie Taggart. Neither Bullard, nor King, nor Bailey’s injuries looked very serious, and I can only assume that Dalcourt is still undergoing rehabilitation for the knee injury he re-aggrevated during spring practice – though there was no official word today.

As far as Gothard and Elder are concerned, things looked more serious. Neither were even in shorts or a jersey this afternoon, and weren’t on Monday either.

I haven’t gotten an official word on either in terms of if or when they’ll be back on the practice field – or whether or not they’ll be able to go this season. But typically when a player isn’t dressed at all, things tend to be more serious in nature.

In any event, we’ll get that figured out officially and have a full report ASAP.

Props to you Lawrence for pointing that out – it’s been a while since full back made its way onto a WKU football depth chart.
But as of now, consider it fixed.
