Here is a story we've heard before (far too many times) -- redshirt junior safety Elijah Fields was demoted to the second team today because there were some "internal" issues which have "come up during camp" (Dave Wannstedt's words, not mine).
But hey brace yourself for this --- he'll be back to the first team tomorrow.

"I'm sure it's going to go well. I can't wait."
You've got to think that the first few hits he dishes out will be cautious ones. But his approach (at least to the media) sounds like the correct one.
In other news, Kolby Gray, the recruited QB from Texas, will miss the season to have shoulder surgery. Not particularly big news team-wise since he was going to be redshirting, but it would have been nice for him to be able to practice this year and learn the ropes a little.
