It’s the morning after injury day. Let’s look at some of the notes from the workout this morning:

DEE MILLINER: As mentioned by Milliner himself, it is unclear as to whether his ankle sprain is a high ankle sprain or not. The staff needs to wait for the swelling to go down first. However, the fact that he was driven to practice is not a good sign.

CB ANTONIO ALLEN?: Rex and Dennis Thurman may be working towards a solution to the cornerback problem, if evidence from camp this morning is any indication. Antonio Allen was seeing working at cornerback today. Could that just be a situational setup? Sure. It’s worth keeping an eye out on. Allen also did record two interceptions today.

ELLIS LANKSTER: It looks like the cornerback position, at least initially, is starting to step up. I mentioned the work that Allen did at camp this morning. Ellis Lankster also looked good in coverage this morning. Maybe Lankster could be the guy?

GENO SMITH: Geno was not sharp at camp this morning. He threw two interceptions and missed wide open wide receivers. He really needs to cement his role as the starter by performing more consistently in practice. With Michael Vick lurking in the background, Geno needs to get it going.
