March of the line

The offensive line is a tight-knit group. But the players went a little too far Monday morning. One after another, they made the Jog of Shame.

First, Ryan Cook. Then Anthony Herrera. Then Artis Hicks, who was accompanied by RB Chester Taylor. Each had to immediately get off the line of scrimmage after a false start and run to and around the far goal post, a long, embarrassing jog.

Meanwhile, TE Visanthe Shiancoe made a nice catch on the right sideline for about 20 yards. RB Ciatrick Fason also had a solid catch and run.

But the star of practice may have been Martin Nance, who made several catches. His best was on a post pattern near the goal line from Brooks Bollinger. Nance had to fully stretch, but made the catch.

Another interesting play: Tarvaris Jackson just knocked down Kevin Williams. Maybe Williams was just going to run by, because he's not supposed to hit the quarterbacks, or maybe he slipped. But Jackson lowered the shoulder and put Williams down.
