Here are the highlights from Tuesday’s practice at Virginia Mason Athletic Center:
- Linebacker Aaron Curry produced a speedy rush off the edge to fly past the offensive tackle, rush quarterback J.P. Losman into a hurried throw on the run, which was then picked off by cornerback Marcus Trufant.
- During a team rushing-focused period, tailback Leon Washington had a nice shimmy move on a rush up the middle, stopping on a dime and shifting directions in an instant to leap free for a big gain.
- Cornerback Walter Thurmond made a great play on an errant bullet pass over the middle to snag an interception during 11-on-11 drills.
- Fullback Owen Schmitt took advantage of a hole in the secondary to get open for a long reception downfield during team drills.
- Tailback Louis Rankin hit the pile and bounced outside to the left for a lengthy gain during team period.
