AUG. 11: The Utes had their second double day of camp — practicing in the morning at Rice-Eccles Stadium and on the baseball field in the late afternoon.
Standout performers: Whittingham said the senior defensive end Nate Orchard had a nice outing in the morning practice. The coach also noted the entire secondary did a good job — for the most part — in coverage. Whittingham also noted that Andy Phillips kicked exceptionally well.
Quotable: “I think they’ve upgraded speed-wise on offense. There’s no question.” — Rick Neuheisel, Pac-12 Networks
Injuries: Whittingham said there is “concern” about senior safety Tevin Carter’s surgically repaired ankle. “He’s practicing so that’s a positive,” said Whittingham, who acknowledged it’s a balancing act trying to get Carter enough reps while not wearing him out. Carter and senior safety Brian Blechen, who was sidelined last season with a knee injury, are being held out of the evening practice for precautionary reasons.
Next up: The Utes have a scrimmage Tuesday morning at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
