Here are the highlights from Thursday afternoon’s practice:
- On “Turnover Thursday,” cornerback Marcus Trufant made sure the defense lived up to the challenge. The veteran flew in front of an over route for an interception and had 85 yards of clear running room to reach the end zone for the pick-six.
- Cornerback Kelly Jennings also had an interception during the practice, snagging an underthrown deep ball for the defense’s other turnover on the day.
- On back-to-back goal-line plays, Julius Jones rushed for two short touchdowns to end the practice. Also, during earlier 11-on-11 work, the tailback also broke a long run up the middle thanks to excellent blocking by the offensive line.
- Matt Hasselbeck tossed a beautiful throw downfield to wideout Golden Tate, who jumped up over the cornerback to make an amazing catch on the play.
- During team period, tailback Justin Forsett turned in a juke-filled run to sneak through the line and break free for a 50 yard touchdown.
- Wideout Ruvell Martin made a fantastic shoe-string catch along the left sideline during team period.
