“They just have to progress in their own way, and hopefully they’re ready by September when we need them,” A-backs coach and special-teams coordinator Lamar Owens said. “We’re taking it one day at a time with them, also. You can’t rush the process with them just because we need a kicker.”
Both Davis and King are taking kickoffs, too. Johnson ruled out the two splitting the placekicking job, but Owens added that one could take kickoffs and the other the placement kicks.
