Edwards Day To Day: Trent Edwards spoke to the media has camp broke today. He said he doesn't know yet if he'll play on Sunday. It all depends on how much swelling he has in his injured area to see how quickly he can rehab it and get back on the field. There is nothing structurally wrong with the knee area and he feels it's a day to day thing. He feels the team made a lot of progress in training camp and likes the diversity of the offense. He's excited to see where it will go when the season starts.
Jauron On Camp: Dick Jauron said today the end of camp is an interesting time. He said the facilities are great and the fans gave outstanding support throughout the camp. He thinks the camp went well but you really can't tell until you start playing the games for real. They accomplished the installation of the offense and defense and he feels everyone worked hard.
Banks Hurt: Rookie Jon Banks missed the last practice of camp with a hamstring injury. The trainers are not overly optimistic of a quick recovery. On the positive side, Marshawn Lynch worked out as he had minimal swelling from his collision with Trent Edwards. Injury Page.
Edwards Out: Trent Edwards did not participate in the final practice of training camp today. The team's website reports he was standing on the sidelines in sweatpants.

Losman Speaks: For the first time since losing his starting job for good in November J.P. Losman spoke to the media after finishing taking the first team reps in last night's practice. He said it has been difficult keeping himself motivated but he must stay prepared for situations like last night. He doesn't want to let his teammates down even if he just goes in for a few plays this year. He said he has no ill will towards Trent Edwards saying it wasn't his fault he was benched and to be mad at him would be childish.
Edwards Has Quad Contusion: The injury suffered in practice last night by Trent Edwards is considered a deep quad bruise as his thigh collided with the knee cap of Marshawn Lynch. They treated it quickly in the locker room to keep the swelling down. How it responds today will go a long way in determining how long he'll be sidelined. He was on the field for about five minutes after the collision. Lynch finished practice but was also treated afterwards for soreness in his knee from the collision. Injury Page.
