From a Jacksonville Jaguars practice report this morning:
- Football Follies Moment of the Day: Lee had a pass to Dorren Miller broken up by safety Charlie Miller (#MillerOnMillerCrime). The ball floated in the air until veteran safety Don Carey was able to get his hands on it. However, rookie linebacker Reggie Hunter was also tracking the ball and slammed into Carey, breaking up the interception and knocking his teammate to the ground. Lee clearly owes Hunter, at the very least, a Coke.
And from a San Francisco 49ers report this morning:
All three backup quarterbacks threw interceptions on the day. Undrafted rookie Jack Heneghan saw his first practice snaps of training camp, and his first pass attempt was tipped by Antone Exum and intercepted by Tarvarus McFadden. Moore picked off Mullens (detailed above), and C.J. Beathard got a rude welcome to practice. Beathard arrived late on the practice field after attending the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony in support of his grandfather, former NFL executive Bobby Beathard. On his first pass attempt, Tyvis Powell came though with the interception. 
Another reminder that BGA Premium kicks off Thursday with a comprehensive look at Week One opponent Georgetown. There will be opponent previews for 10 consecutive days followed by practice reports every day until the start of the season. With the start of regular season coverage there will be stories on the site every day until Monday after the final game of the year.

It's only with your help that I've been able to attend EVERY full Memorial Field practice since 2005 as well as EVERY game since 2005 to file detailed reports. Thanks to all for helping keep BGA going!
