I’m not about to count all those guys up, but I did record a T Formation Conversation podcast today going through all the walking wounded and talking about some of the players that have been benefitting from the extra practice reps.

As for today’s practice, the defense picked off several passes and generally won the day. But here’s the awesome thing about camp this season; even with the defense standing out, the quarterbacks still had plenty of moments they shined as well. Both Andy Dalton and Justin Fields continue to do some nice things, and we’ve yet to hear about the offense having any awful moments.

Here are some Twitter highlights form the day.
