Harrison Beck missed his 5th straight practice yesterday with injuries to his hamstring and throwing shoulder. While the injury itself may not be serious, the loss of valuable practice time is. Let's face it, practice observers were reporting that Beck was still struggling before the injury. Meanwhile, Joe Ganz continues to impress, though nobody gives him much of a shot. In any event, this makes this weekend's spring game almost a non-event since Zac Taylor will probably only make a token appearance. Ganz and Beau Davis will likely take most of the snaps on Saturday, because even if Beck makes it back to practice, they probably will hold him out of contact.
Beck's injury also means that Callahan and Norvell have to make a tough decision with less to work with...and that is whether to target a junior college quarterback, especially one that can arrive at the semester break. I wouldn't be surprised if that recruiting isn't already underway, encouraging potential targets to take enough classes over the summer to become eligible by Christmas.
