Oct. 6 practice blog

Sophomore starting quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw was active in practice, throwing passes during 7-on-7 and some scout-team work.

Bradshaw, who missed last week’s against Penn State due to injury, did not participate in contact drills.

Coach Jeff Monken said at his weekly press conference if Bradshaw is healthy he will start against Duke.

Senior A.J. Schurr took first-team reps and would make his second straight start if Bradshaw can’t go.

Sophomore tackle Brett Toth is back taking first-team snaps after missing the last three games due to injury.

Safety Rhyan England and offensive linemen Justin Gilbert, Rick Kurz and Jaryn Villegas did not practice.

England was carted off the field after suffering a head injury in the fourth quarter at Penn State. Monken said there’s hope that England can play but he must pass tests Wednesday.

If England can’t play, junior Tevin Long, Army’s nickelback, would likely start at safety.

The following players were wearing Ranger jerseys for perfect effort against Penn State: LB Alex Aukerman; FB Matt Giachinta; C Matt Hugenberg; LB Andrew King; WR Edgar Poe; DE Eddy Ruzga; DE John Voit.

Sights and sounds: Superintendent Bob Caslen attended practice…Junior quarterback Matt Kaufmann dropped in a pass to freshman slotback Tyler Campbell…Kaufmann connected with freshman slotback Jordan Asberry. Freshman wide receiver Jamal Tookes elevated over a cornerback to make a nice catch on a pass from freshman quarterback Chris Carter. Carter showed some speed getting to the outside on a run…Monken took notice of the catch, saying, “Hell of a play, Tookes.”…Senior Daniel Grochowski’s 47-yard field goal finished practice with the entire team circling the kicker and screaming as loud as possible.
