McCummings back at practice

Sophomore quarterback Scott McCummings, who had missed the early part of training camp to tend to a personal matter, was back at practice today according to UConn SID Mike Enright.

McCummings return comes at an ideal time since UConn is a little thin at quarterback since Mike Nebrich left the team especially since prize freshman Casey Cochran still is unable to take snaps from center because of a broken left wrist.

Although McCummings missed a lot of time during fall camp, Pasqualoni believes his experience playing during the 2011 season and in spring camp should help McCummings get up to speed quickly.

McCummings was 5 of 10 passes for 157 yards and two touchdowns during the 2011 season but his real impact was running the ball out of the Wildcat formation as McCummings' 285 yards and five rushing touchdowns were second on the 2011 UConn team behind only tailback Lyle McCombs' totals of 1,151 yards and seven rushing TDs.

Also, Pasqualoni said he does not have a firm date for announcing team captains but he thought it should happen the week leading up to the season opener against UMass on Aug. 30.
