The most exciting part of today's practice has been from the beginning. When Antonio Brown went to the field with his teammates. The enigmatic star recipient was listed on the list of non-football casualties. This designation took an exercise, but did not mean that Brown was full again.
Brown persisted in his physical condition, but his day lasted approximately as long as it took to be reported that he had returned. The team trained before stretching and warming up. When they started this period, Brown's day was over.
At first it was expected that Brown would be on the road for about a week. And at this rate, it's hard to say exactly what to expect from him. It could be that he just wanted the NFI and the team is still planning to lure him into the field.
"You'll see AB soon enough," Derek Carr said on the first day. We'll see him soon enough and how great he is. "
Pads are coming tomorrow, and that may not be the case if we see him fully.
Catching the day
There was not much to choose. Unlike day one, where Derek Carr regularly went deep into the depths, day two were mostly short passes and runs. By default, the catch of the day went to JJ Nelson, who brought Keisean Nixon on a go-route behind corner. Derek Carr's pass was a bit short and Nelson adjusted to bring the catch for the touchdown to the ground. It was not pretty, but he stuck to it.
Setting a good example
Nelson is best known for his speed. But novice Isaiah Johnson stayed with him step by step on a pass up the right sideline to force an incompletion.
Defensive Game of the Day
Johnson's game was good, but I have to give it to Brandon Marshall, who made himself felt on the second day. The experienced linebacker missed the entire off-season due to injury, so it was definitely fresh. A few times he came in the middle to stuff runs.
