Middle linebacker D.J. Williams was not in his walking boot during lunch at the Olivet Nazarene University dining hall. The walking boot remains off of left tackle Jermon Bushrod, but he's still being held out of practice. Reserve tackle Jonathan Scott is also being held out, leaving Eben Britton to get 1st team LT reps.
Now on to some super informational Tweets about practice!

Re-watched the fight w/M Bennett. Conte ran off sideline and jumped in. Like 5 DBs punching down on the unicorn. Knocked his helmet off.— Michael C. Wright (@mikecwright) August 2, 2013
