Adams throws touchdown in Vanderbilt scrimmage
Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low
Adams, competing with sophomore Larry Smith for the starting job, hit tight end Justin Green with a 28-yard touchdown pass. Funk connected wide receiver Turner Wimberly on a 32-yard sideline route resulting in another score.
Several defenders, including cornerback Casey Hayward, linebacker Chris Marve and defensive end Theron Kadri, made key individual plays to stop possessions.
Other highlights included:
- Physical running by tailback Kennard Reeves, who punished Hayward at the end of a 11-yard carry. Earlier in the practice, Reeves broke two tackles on an impressive 30-yard rush.
- Receiver John Cole showed continued progress returning from injury, catching five passes, including a pair of acrobatic passes. Cole also dodged tackles on three of the receptions for extra yardage.
- Before colliding with Reeves on the sidelines, Hayward made an impressive third-down tackle for loss of tailback Ryan van Rensburg to halt the first possession.
- A quarterback sack by Marve and tackle for loss by tackle Billinger helped the defense stop two other drives.
