Dry run

SUMMERLIN — For the first time this week, the Warriors did not wake up to a storm.

And that is fine for the Warriors, who had ideal conditions — a dry run, so to speak — for their final full practice before Saturday's game against UNLV.

Of note:

• There were four NFL scouts at today's practice.

• Tyler Hadden will handle all of the place-kicking duties.

• Although Terence Bell has practiced with the first team the past three practices, Justin Clapp has been impressive, and is expected to merit extended playing time (he might even start).

• Left wideout Darius Bright had his best practice of the year, punctuated by a leaping catch in the end zone.

There also has been some interesting experiments. Backup quarterback David Graves has taken reps as a slotback. After Graves went deep on a pass pattern, a teammate yelled: "Welcome back."But Graves acknowledges he is strictly an emergency receiver. "I'm a backup-backup-backup plan," Graves said.

Here are Darius Bright, Barry Wagner, Royce Pollard (back row), Allen Sampson, Nick Rolovich and Albrey Battle. Wagner, Battle and Rolovich were teammates with the San Jose SaberCats of the Arena Football League.

Happy birthday to Glenn Miyashiro (the singer) and Howard Dashefsky.

And much-belated happy birthday wishes to Roosevelt's eternal prom queen, Cora Watanabe-Higa.
