DE Talia Crichton and C Drew Schaefer are still not practicing with knee injuries. LB Taz Stevenson was sick and did not practice and LB Scott Lawyer continues to sit out with a groin injury.
Walk-on LB Alec Kimble was back practicing after missing all of spring so far with a foot injury.
S James Sample and S Travis Feeney remain in red non-contact jerseys with shoulder injuries. FB/LB Cooper Pelluer was back to full contact activity in practice, but sat out the end of practice while icing his injured shoulder.
WR Kevin Smith (knee), RB/LB Ryan McDaniel (knee), RB Deontae Cooper (knee), DE Hau'oli Jamora (knee), OL Colin Tanigawa (knee) and DT Semisi Tokolahi (foot) remain unable to practice and likely won't during the duration of spring practice.
