USF taking it slow with injured Sims

VERO BEACH – Senior RT Jacob Sims, who has started 19 games the past two seasons, is the most notable player yet to see the field in USF’s three practices here at the Vero Beach Sports Village.
Sims continues to battle concussion-like symptoms after getting injured early in camp.
“We’re being very cautious with that because of what he’s been through,’’ USF coach Skip Holtz said. “We’re not trying to rush him back into action.’’
Sims was limited by injuries late last season and has suffered a prior concussion.
In his place, reserve Damien Edwards and true freshman Quinterrius Eatmon have filled in capably. Eatmon, expected to be redshirted, came on strong Tuesday in USF’s first two-a-day of camp.
“He keeps getting better and better,’’ Holtz said.
EYE OPENER: Sophomore WR T.J. Knowles, who transferred from Saddleback (Calif.) College, was one of USF’s most impressive performers during Tuesday’s two practice sessions.
In the night practice, Knowles caught a touchdown pass from walk-on QB Bobby Eveld.
“T.J. is a very serious individual. He is in that meeting room and he is in that playbook,’’ Holtz said. “I get excited when I look out there at that big 6-8 frame. He’s done some really good things. Every day, you can see his confidence really starting to grow.’’
INJURY REPORT: Former Chamberlain standout Dontae Aycock missed practice Tuesday due to tendinitis in his knee, and freshman DT Todd Chandler sat out the evening session due to a hamstring injury.
Meanwhile, TE Jeff Hawkins (head), TE Chase Griffiths (head) and OL Josh Garvin (personal reasons) did not practice.
BULL BITS: WR Justin Wilkins, who was a member of the 2008 team, has rejoined the Bulls as a walk-on, taking the roster spot vacated with the loss of WR Colby Erskin due to a knee injury … The Bulls return to the practice field Wednesday from 5:30 to 8 p.m.; all practices in Vero Beach are open to the public.
