In a red zone team period, Shuler Bentley fired a 20-yard touchdown pass to Travis Fulgham while LaRussa tossed a 20-yarder to Isaiah Harper while Coward added a sack for the defense.

In the final team period of practice LaRussa completed a screen pass to Malik Fuller that he took for a 60-yard touchdown.

In field goal drills, Chris Kirtley drilled a long kick of 50-yards.
