Inoke Funaki continues to impress as a running back.
A coach marveled at Funaki’s abiity to “get skinny” on rushes, vernacular for being able to run without ever getting hit squarely.
Also during today’s pactice:
• Cornerback Jeramy Bryant had the gutsiest play, taking on center John Estes on a sweep play. Bryant is expected to win one of the corner jobs.
• The most impressive play was defensive end John Fonoti chasing down slotback Ryan Henry, who had at least a 3-yard head start on the rest of the defense. Henry can run 40 yards in 4.5 seconds.
• Slotback Rick Taylor was on crutches with an injury to his right ankle. He will undergo X-rays today.
• Defensive tackle Quentin Beaver did not practice because of strained rotator cuff in hiis right shoulder. He suffered the injury last week, then aggravated it during the past Saturday’s scrimmage.

Today was media guide day. Players filled out info forms that will be used in the media guide. They also posed for pictures. Two rules: 1) shower first (they took turns wearing H-logo shirts), and 2) no jewelry. Safety Lametrius Davis had to remove his four ear studs.
