“We’ve got some guys beat up,” Smart said. “A couple of guys who couldn't go . … But, knock on wood, no major, major injuries.”
The team will get the day off Sunday and resume with a light practice Monday as Smart attempts to “get everybody’s legs back.”
“We've got to get recovery. We've got to get fluids,” Smart said. “You could see it today. The GPS says it. A guy that was running 19 (miles per hour) is running 17. A guy that was running 21 is running 18, 19. They're hurting a little bit. But part of that is mental toughness and the grit. They've been able to handle that."
Smart said defensive linemen David Marshall (foot) and Julian Rochester (knee) have been missing all or parts of practices is part of an incremental rehab plan.
“Julian and David are both older players, fourth-year players, who are not 100 percent,” Smart said. “So we're trying to control their volume of reps, also giving the other guys reps. But they've practiced each day.”
