MCCOLLUM ON TODAY'S PRACTICE: "I thought we had another solid day of work and got in a lot of stuff. I have been very pleased with our first two workouts, but we have a long way to go before we are ready to play. These guys are focused and are working hard. We have a really good looking group of kids, who dedicated their entire summer to get better and it shows out there."
