• Allen Sampson and Scott Harding today were tested under fire for the first time. They both did well in catching the ball under pressure and eluding would-be tacklers in full-contact drills.
• While Mike Edwards will be getting the first shot as a kickoff returner, Sampson, Harding and Royce Pollard also will be considered.
• Long-snapper Luke Ingram’s left arm was in a sling. Although he will have an MRI, there isn’t much concern. Mostly because Ingram snaps side-armed.
• With Chauncy Winchester-Makainai suffering back spasms and David Lefotu recovering from a sore knee, Levi Legay moved from right tackle to right guard. Winchester-Makainai and Lefotu should be ready tomorrow.
• Defensive tackle Moses Samia was helped off the field today, then his left knee was treated.
• The Warriors’ biggest live performance is tonight: the talent show.
