Practice Report (7/28): Day 3 notes & observations


Temperatures were in the 90s despite Friday's late 5 p.m. practice at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. The session went for 90 minutes with players making sure to stay hydrated throughout the day.

* Darius Slayton made a number of big plays down the field and had some tough catches in traffic. On the second play of 7-on-7, Slayton caught what would have been an explosive play. Later during the same period, Daniel Jones found Slayton over the top down the right sideline – the receiver fully extended his arms to make the catch in stride. Slayton made another grab toward the end of practice, going to the ground to come up with a low throw.

* Before the competitive portions of practice, the quarterbacks were working with the running backs on the play-action boot game, while wide receivers were working on their start-stop movement skills. Defensive tackles focused on staying low out of their stances, before hitting the heavy sleds. Safeties practiced their ball tracking/attacking skills, while cornerbacks worked on their technique at the line of scrimmage. Pass rushers showed off violent hands on some bags, before turning the corner to simulate getting to the quarterback.

* Saquon Barkley made the first catch of practice in 7-on-7's in the middle of the field. Three plays later, Jalin Hyatt caught a tough contested slant from Tyrod Taylor. Hyatt later caught a ball from Jones.

* Jones led off the 11-on-11 portion of practice with a quarterback keeper. Later, he found Darren Waller on a route headed to the sideline, where Waller made a leaping catch.

* Kayvon Thibodeaux showed off his speed to press the corner.

* Darnay Holmes had at least two sacks, and Leonard Williams got himself into the backfield a couple of times. Dexter Lawrence, Micah McFadden and Carter Coughlin also had pressures that would have likely turned into sacks. On the flip side, running back Jashaun Corbin squared up on a blitz pickup to halt a charging linebacker.

* Graham Gano was 5-for-5 on his field goal attempts, including kicks from 48, 53 and 55 yards.
