Patton update and other tidbits from Morris

Chad Morris said Jeremy Patton might get back to practice in around a week. He said Patton suffered a bruise on his ankle yesterday. He had a boot and was on crutches Tuesday.

Colton Jackson’s back surgery rehab is progressing ahead of schedule. The original timeline on Jackson’s return was after the sixth game. Morris isn’t sure that it will be sooner, but that the rehab is going well.

Kevin Richardson, out with a broken foot, should be back in early September.

It rained for all but the last 20 minutes of today’s practice, sometimes in a heavy down pour. Morris said that made him happy because he’d planned to practice with “wet balls” on Tuesday anyway.

Dalton Wagner practiced at right tackle again Tuesday with Brian Wallace nursing a minor injury. Wallace should return to full contact drills Wednesday and that would probably allow Wagner to flip back for some work on the right side.
