- Tight end Andrew Isaacs continues to make progress in his long recovery from an injury that ended his 2014 season. He began to take part in individual contact drills this week.
- After uncharacteristically missing two kicks against Richmond, Randy Edsall says Brad Craddock had a solid week of practice. He says that if there was an issue last week, it's more likely to be a mechanical issue than a mental issue.
- Former four-star offensive lineman Derwin Gray returned to practice this week and Edsall said he was "rusty." There is no set timetable for when he will return to the two-deep depth chart, which is staying the same as against Richmond.
- Shaffer impressed the coaching staff, winning his first scout team honors. More on the freshman quarterback later.
