Washington State wrapped up their fourth practice of fall camp Sunday and Mike Leach called it the best practice yet.
Wade Jacobson was back at practice which is a good sign. Rico Forbes did light work according to Christian Caple, but was moving around on crutches. Nolan Washington was on an exercise bike for the second straight day and was joined by Corey Laufasa. Rahmel Dockery was not at practice, although it is unknown if he is injured.
Edit: turns out Dockery was at practice just working on defense.
A note on Rahmel Dockery: he was at practice yesterday, wearing defensive jersey No. 32 (there were two of them).— Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) August 6, 2012
Play Of The Day:
I think we've seen this before:
Marquess Wilson had an impressive touchdown catch in the back corner of the end zone, in which he tipped the ball over the defender to himself.
Sounds like Leach's spring practice message to Wilson was received loud and clear:
"It was more my integrity of wanting to come out there and play and seeing I was letting my team down," Wilson said. "That just made me come to the realization that I needed to work harder for them, because I know they're going to work hard for me, so that's what's been pushing me this fall camp.
Alex Jackson arrived in Pullman and was wearing a white defensive jersey. According to Christian, Leach said they are seeing what he could do and are going to try him out at a few positions.
WSU will be back on the practice field at 2:45 p.m. and will be in full pads for the first time.

Fall Camp: Day 4, Shoulder Pads - Washington State University Cougars
Washington State worked out in helmets and shoulder pads for just over two hours on Rogers Field Sunday afternoon. The Cougars continued to work through a similar practice schedule as the first three, opening with individual position drills before working through some team segments and then moving on to 7-vs.-7 drills.

Another scorcher on the Palouse this afternoon, with Washington State going through its fourth practice of camp — and its final practice before putting on full pads. We were there, as usual, and have some notes and observations after the jump.

PULLMAN – If there is a topic Marquess Wilson likes discussing less than his own play – much of which has been outstanding through the first two seasons of his Washington State career – it has yet to be discovered.
