Pads! Warriors in the Pros

Sunday's their day off, but they strapped it up yesterday.

Stephen Tsai keeps track of highly touted transfer from Tennessee, Mike Edwards.
Edwards, who played eight games as a Tennessee freshman in 2009, moved to Hawaii three weeks ago. In 2009, he was one of Ohio’s top prospects among high school seniors. He currently is the Warriors’ No. 2 right cornerback.

He also reports on how Moniz and his receiving corps kept in shape in the offseason.
Pollard said: "It's just the reps. We put in a lot of time together. We're thinking the same. We're still developing. There are always things we can develop on."

Dave Reardon talks about Richard Torres, who has gone from hopeful walkon to starting strong safety.
"I knew I was a long shot to play," he says. "But I wasn't coming here to sit on the bench. I came to work hard to get in the game and make plays."

And as always, keep checking Mr. Tsai's Warrior Beat blog daily for the most current up to date scoops (and its free!)
Lots of pictures from practice as well as a call for volunteers.
Want to help the Warriors? They are seeking volunteers to video practices and games. (Colorado and Fresno State graduates need not apply.) If you're interested, call video coordinator Chris Williams at 956-6508.

Here's yesterday's news:

And tonight's:

And as promised, but a day late, our Warriors in the Pros weekly wrap up:

Oakland Raiders re-sign Samson Satele. And how he might be battling for the starting center spot in this post practice video interview with Head Coach Hue Jackson.

Unfortunate news for Jacksonville Jaguar guard Vince Manuwai, who was released earlier this week.
Here's hoping he can get back into shape and with a new team.
Manuwai, a third-round pick who started 105 games in eight seasons, showed up at training camp with a torn tendon in his left ankle and overweight. Considering he was due to make $3.5 million this season, the Jaguars simply couldn’t keep an aging veteran who was out of shape. He also acknowledged having “personal issues.”

New York Jets Warrior Wayne Hunter looks like he'll get the starting nod at right tackle.

And for our Warriors playing up north in the CFL, Solomon Emimian is fresh in the mind of Edmonton Eskimos QB Ricky Ray.
"He's [Elimimian] really hammered it home in my mind that I've got to slide," Ray said Friday, following preparations for tonight's game against the Lions at Commonwealth Stadium. "Last year, I might have tried to pick up a few extra yards. This year, I'm going to go down when I see guys like him coming at me."

He seems to be making his presence felt, as another CFL QB, Buck Pierce left a game early due to a Solly hit.
And here's a nice action shot of Solly sacking another QB.
Solly seems to be everywhere the QB is, as here's one more sack photo courtesy of Andy Clark, Reuters, Calgary Herald; Postmedia News.

His teammate Adam Leonard also has a photo of him getting into the tackling action.
Unfortunately, he might be lost for the season with an ACL injury in the last game.
Chad Owens has had a tough season so far, with a few more fumbles than he'd like. And he hopes to get back in the WR rotation.
The guy remains a game breaker on special teams, capable of going the distance each time a punt or kickoff lands in his hands, but it was as a receiver many believed Owens would thrive
