Utah Utes defensive back Brian Blechen (4) works out during spring practice in Salt Lake City Tuesday, March 18, 2014.

DAY 13: The Utes practiced for two hours Tuesday afternoon at Rice-Eccles Stadium. Head coach Kyle Whittingham said there was good and bad in the session.

β€œIt started a little sluggish but things picked up,” he explained, noting that there was some positive live work at the end.

STANDOUTS: Whittingham said that placekicking continued to be a strength. Andy Phillips made all of his kicks. Running back-turned-linebacker Marcus Sanders-Williams had an interception early in practice.

NEXT UP: The Utes close out spring camp with a practice Thursday (3-5 p.m.) and the red-white game Saturday (1 p.m.).
