Danny Coale's workload increases
“I think that’s safe to say,” Coale said.
A stress fracture in his foot kept Coale out for most of the offseason and the early part of training camp. A sore quadriceps kept him out for a couple of days last week and he has yet to see action in the preseason.
With increased work, Coale will get a better chance to claim a roster spot.
“I’m just worried about this practice rght here,” Coale said. “With the injuries I’ve had with my foot I was curious to see how it would respond, and it responded well. You take one day at a time and I’m happy the way it felt. There’s a lot of work to be done on the football side of things, but I’m happy how it felt physically.”
Coale caught four of the five passes thrown his way Monday with the lone miss coming on a deep ball from Kyle Orton that was just out of his reach.
