METAIRIE, La. — It was physical again for rookie offensive tackle Trevor Penning in team drills as he was involved in a skirmish for the third practice in a row. This time he was involved with defensive lineman Malcolm Roach and the two had to be separated. Head coach Dennis Allen tossed both players from practice.
In better news, defensive back Tyrann Mathieu was back on the field after being gone for about a week for undisclosed personal matters. Michael Thomas took part in 7 on 7 drills for the first time. Both men were being eased back, according to Allen.
And, Paulson Adebo continued to impress with pass breakups in receiver-DB drills.
