Second scrimmage: The Cousins and Caper show

The LSJ has a brief writeup of yesterday's scrimmage, the second of the week, and the ES broke out the statistics below to make it easier to follow. Highlighting the performance on offense was improvement from Kirk Cousins, which just tightens the QB race back up with Keith Nichol. TE Dion Sims made big plays, and RB Larry Caper has seemingly taken the lead with a productive 4.9 yards per carry average yesterday. And, you gotta love it when our LBs are our leading two tacklers. Said the Doctor, "I thought the offense played and executed better... The quarterbacks threw the ball effectively, and the offense ran the ball better, especially in third-and-short situations... Defensively, the guys up front know what they're doing, so they play fast and there aren't many missed assignments. We're 16 practices into camp and the guys are playing at game speed." Statistics from Friday's scrimmage:


  • Cousins: 6-13-119. 1 TD, 1 INT.
  • Nichol: 7-14-54. 0 TD, 0 INT.

Running Backs:

  • Caper: 14-68. 1 TD (7 yards). 4.9 ypc.
  • Ray: 16-37. 2.3 ypc.
  • Baker: 14-32. 2.3 ypc.


  • White: 3-66.
  • Sims: 2-38. 1 TD.
  • Jones: 10 tackles, 2 TFL, 1 sack.
  • Gordon: 8 tackles.
  • Rucker: 1 INT, 1 TD.
