Noteworthy: Emphasis today was on special teams as the Raiders held a kicking scrimmage ... Punter Josh Davis hit the ball well as did placekickers Cody Clark and Canon Rooker ... Safety Anfornee Stewart still worked on the sideline with strength coach Jason Spray ... WR Kyle Griswould was limited ... New Orleans Saints scout attended practice ... Officials were on hand to work all of practice ... Former placekicker Carlos Lopez, who will sign with Arena League's Tampa Bay Storm next week, stopped by practice ... Campetition today ended in a tie between the offense and defense ... With four starters returning to an offensive line that finished second nationally in fewest sacks allowed the one open spot has been secured by a redshirt freshman. Josh Chester, out of Warner Robins, GA, is currently tops on the depth chart at center.
Coach Stockstill on Today's Kicking Scrimmage: "We had a really good scrimmage, a lot better than last week's. We did a good job of covering and protecting in the punting game and our field goal block was executed well. We were able to get a lot of pressure on the kicker. The only disappointing area was in our short punt session because we put them all in the endzone and did not give our gunners a chance to cover them in the field of play.
