There were a handful of nice catches during the morning, full-pads practice.
None was prettier than a fingertip grab by rookie wide receiver Jason
Carter of a Tarvaris Jackson bomb over cornerback Tony Beckham during an
individual passing drill.
Good pass, better catch.
Cornerback Fred Smoot made a beautiful, juggling interception of a Brad
Johnson sideline pass during the 11-on-11 action.
Johnson later hit wide receiver Marcus Robinson with a deep ball behind
rookie cornerback Cedric Griffin, and tight end Richard Angulo had a
juggling catch of a J.T. O'Sullivan pass.
Wide receiver Billy McMullen and Angulo make the list by default because
of a couple of easy drops.
â€¢ Linebacker Chad Greenway is awaiting season-ending surgery to repair a
torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
â€¢ Running back Mewelde Moore did not practice because of a left knee
injury and is listed as day to day.
â€¢ Same for wide receiver Kevin Kasper (high ankle sprain) and linebacker
Marcus Lawrence (sprained knee ligament).

Quarterback Brad Johnson, asked if the team can win without wide
receiver Koren Robinson.
