Arizona State wore full pads at practice Thursday morning in the Verde Dickey Dome as preseason camp continued. Media was able to watch stretching, individual drills, special teams and 11-on-0 offense before being removed.
Junior running back Demario Richard was in green today with a heavily taped right ankle. He didn’t participate in drills from what media was allowed to watch, but he was in pads.
Freshman wideout N’Keal Harry did not participate in individual drills either. He and Richard were at “Muscle Beach” during drills.
Redshirt freshman Bryce Perkins attended practice today wearing a large neck brace. From the looks of it, it’s doubtful Perkins will practice at all this season. Graham said after practice that Perkins will be out for an extended period of time but was not sure that it was a season-ending injury. Scout.com is reporting the injury will sideline Perkins for 2-3 months.
Redshirt junior safety James Johnson was in green for the second day in a row. Redshirt senior defensive back Laiu Moeakiola was not seen at practice today.
Redshirt freshman quarterback Brady White guided the first-team offense through a quick series against no defense today. Redshirt sophomore quarterback Manny Wilkins was with the second team, and freshman Dillon Sterling-Cole got a few quick reps with the third team.
