• Quarterback David Graves has been summoned as the injury replacement for Spencer Smith, who suffered a fractured right forearm in Saturday’s 31-28 victory over Army. Graves is scheduled to leave tonight on the red-eye flight, arriving tomorrow in Las Vegas, where the Warriors will train through Friday in preparation for Saturday’s road game against Colorado.
Graves has been told he will be used as a safety. He was a slotback/cornerback through his junior year of high school. “Any way I can help the team, I’ll do it,” Graves said.

The reasoning is that unless you’re in high altitude for a long period — two weeks? — that there is a diminishing results training in Colorado’s thin air for a few days. Or so the Warriors were told.
Thus, Vegas is a viable option for the Warriors (inexpensive, centrally located, good facilities) and a preferred option for reporters.

I’m old. And blind. Today’s mistakes: Pollard caught a 31-yard pass. Max Jenkins fumbled. Green’s TD run was 3 yards. OK, I’m putting myself in timeout now.
