It will be a quick turnaround for the Warriors, who will have 12 hours between the end of yesterday’s twilight practice and the start of this morning’s practice.
Because of the past weekend’s bye, the Warriors were able to squeeze in a 70-minute practice at Ching field yesterday. On the usual Monday of game week, the Warriors would only have weight-training and conditioning drills. Yesterday, the offense and defense worked against the scouts portraying Rice’s schemes.
The Warriors’ secondary should be strengthened this week. Safety Trayvon Henderson, who did not play against Colorado, is back. Nickel corner Nick Nelson is expected to be cleared. Daniel Lewis is back at safety after a game at running back. The Warriors also have been giving a lot of reps to first-year Warriors, such as cornerback Jalen Rogers.
