To listen to Herman, two players who need to make a strong push this final week of camp are DT Chris Daniels and WR John Burt.
From Saturday's scrimmage, Herman said Poona Ford was defensive MVP. On offense? QB Sam Ehlinger.

Horns got a ton of players back today, health wise. Hall, Houston, Jones, Bonney, Thompson. Warren was limited to non-contact work.

Shaka: "That’s definitely a big question mark for us is shooting. It’s more about do they make shots when they matter." Gulp.
