Five sit out camp opener
Rookie defensive tackle Sammie Hill, who could be fighting for a starting job, was held out from todays first training camp workout because he didnt pass the conditioning drills earlier in the day.
He wasnt alone. Tackle Ephraim Salaam and wide receiver Demir Bolden also did not pass the conditioning tests.
Theyre going to re-take and hopefully youll see them on the practice field Sunday. Weve said from the time we got here were going to be accountable for our conditioning, coach Jim Schwartz said.
Defensive tackle Grady Jackson and wide receiver Bryant Johnson also didnt practice.
Johnson is on the non-football injury list while recovering from a golf-cart incident in early July. His return date is unknown.
Jackson, who is on the non-football illness list, is not far away from being ready to play, but there is no timetable for his return.
