Gearing up for spring practice

Randy Edsall held a conference call to preview spring practice, which begins next Tuesday. A few notes.

  • Greg Lloyd's progression off surgery hasn't been as smooth as Edsall hoped, and there is a chance he may not be ready by August. If that's the case, Edsall said Lloyd will be red-shirted for the season. "We're not sure he'll be ready come August," Edsall said. "He's not as far along as we anticipated at this time. To me, he needs to be 100 percent ready (by August) if we're going to get anything out of him this season."
  • Zach Frazer is the No. 1 quarterback heading into the spring, a decision Edsall made based mainly on the way Frazer ended the year. "He knows it's his job to lose," Edsall said. Frazer has done little to dissuade his status, putting in hard work in the offseason. Edsall said he's now 238 pounds, runs a 4.8 40 and has added 53 pounds to his lift totals.
  • Jesse Joseph, Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Mike Ryan, Jimmy Bennett and Robbie Frey will all miss spring practice to receiver from various injuries. Edsall said Ryan is expected to be ready by the end of April, Bennett by June 1, and are expected to be full go by the summer.
  • Chad Christen and Cole Wagner will battle for the punting job. "Right now, Chad has the edge over Cole," Edsall said. "Chad has a stronger leg than what Desi had, and he'll be doing double-duty working on PAT and field goal behind David (Teggart)."
  • Alex Folsom is no longer with the team, having left to deal with personal issues.
