Defensive tackle Rocky Savaiigaea today participated in team drills for the first time since undergoing surgery to repair a torn left triceps.
Savaiigaea played left tackle in the base scheme (4-3) and nose tackle in the Okie defense (3-3-5).
He said he felt fine, but likely will be restricted in the remaining six practices.
• Richard Torres has solified the job at nickelback.
• Offensive coordinator said there still are open spots at the receiver positions, including the first team. Kealoha Pilares, Greg Salas, Dustin Blount, Jon Medeiros and Ryan Henry are battling for slotback jobs. If Salas sticks inside, the competition at left wideout includes Rodney Bradley, Mike Tinoco, Joe Avery, Royce Pollard and Jovonte Taylor.
