Wide receiver Trevor Davis was in a jersey and shorts when he walked onto Ching field yesterday for what was supposed to be a light practice. Davis, who had missed the past two games because of a hamstring injury, was told to return to the locker room and put on his pads.
He was told he would be playing in the weekly scrimmage. The controlled scrimmage used to be limited to redshirts and developing players. The participation now has expanded to non-starters who need extra on-field work.
What has remained consistent is the play of linebacker Jonathan Makaiau, who had another strong performance. Coach Norm Chow noted that by the end of the scrimmage, Makaiau's helmet was crooked after his facemask broke while scrambling for a loose football.
Here's the rundown:
Drive No. 1 (at defense's 38-yard line)
• Jared Leaf rush for 2 yards.
