Luke discussed how his wide receivers are coming along faster than he thought they would’ve, how the Rebels will work to replace Evan Engram at the tight end position, and the depth on the defensive side of the ball.

Luke also mentioned that RB Jordan Wilkins left practice with an ankle injury but did not know the severity of the injury. 

After Coach Luke, TE Dawson Knox talked about competing for the starting tight end spot and how he approaching his new role. CB Jaylon Jones discussed the state of the Rebel secondary, and how he is using his experience from last year to hit the ground running in 2017.
