Are you looking forward to tonight’s practice at LP Field?
Fisher: "Yeah, we’re going to take advantage of it. Usually the first time over there during training camp, it’s a pretty good practice. [It’s] a good exercise for the guys – the change of venues, and we’re going to use the clock and do a lot of different things tonight."
Will tonight’s practice at LP Field will spark memories of the season-ending loss last year for the players?
Fisher: "I think they’ll remember the good things that happened and not necessarily the negative things because it’s always been a great place to play. It’s the first time for a number of players to see the stadium firsthand, to see the locker room. So it’s kind of a fun night."
How are the drafted receivers, Paul Williams, Chris Davis and Joel Filani are stacking up so far?
Fisher: "They’re all making plays. They’re starting to I think become more familiar with what we’re doing. Once you get a feel for what you’re doing, then the ‘plays’ start taking place. You see Paul going up and making catches in the end zone and Chris making catches in third down situations. And Joel is making catches, literally, all over the field. So I think they’re continuing to improve. We’re kind of looking forward to seeing how they do against different competition."
How do you like having a late-evening practice with today’s high heat index?
Fisher: "I kind of planned it that way, and it does work out. I think, had we not [had the evening practice scheduled] we probably would have gone out again today. I was very pleased with the work that we had outside the last few days. They’ve dealt with [the heat] very well. We appear to be very well acclimated and we haven’t had any heat issues. So that’s something that you need to get some in camp and so far, we’ve done well with it."
How is Cortland Finnegan’s play progressing?
Fisher: "He’s making a move. He was slowed with a hamstring injury through the offseason, so he missed out on a lot of valuable time. So he’s caught up now and you can see he’s starting to make some plays."
How satisfied are you with the team’s cohesiveness?
Fisher: "They’re practicing well, they’re meeting well, they’re having fun. They’re enjoying it. They push each other. The personality is good. There’s a lot of carryover from last year. We’re just at the time right now where we need to get in a ballgame and kind of find out where we’re at. I’m sure we’ll talk about Washington over the next couple of days, so it’s going to be a pretty good challenge for us."
