One of the biggest stories all spring has been the absence of OLB Jonathan Newsome and WR Duron Carter from spring practice. Both have been battling academic issues, and today Newsome was finally able to return to the practice field after being clear academically. Jeff Seeman had this to say:

"Jonathan Newsome was back in uniform for the first time this spring, and was making an impact immediately.  Newsome's return leaves only Duron Carter as the only non-injured player missing from the team."

Apparently, Newsome was running with the second-team defense today at OLB. It's feels great to have him back, and I expect big things in the future from Newsome. Hopefully Carter's issues will soon be resolved as well.

Ken Gordon had this:

"Notable was the addition of LB Jonathan Newsome. He had not participated in spring drills until today (for unknown reasons), and assistant coach Luke Fickell immediately welcomed back No. 55 with a shout of "Holy cow, double nickel!"

Defense dominated in the jersey scrimmage today...78-24. Pryor played like garbage! Hope the Spring game looks better...
