The Owls escaped any serious injuries on the first day of training camp. However, offensive lineman Cody Booth, making the switch over from tight end, left practice with his foot in a walking boot. Coach Matt Rhule said that it was a toe injury and nothing serious.

…It sounds as if Jahad Thomas, listed at running back, is going to get a look at a few different positions. On Monday, Thomas spent most of his time working in the secondary. The secondary might be the best spot on the field for Thomas, who is listed at 5-10, 170-pounds.

“Jahad Thomas we’ve got playing corner right now,” Rhule said.

But Rhule didn’t stop there.

“Jahad’s an athlete and I had him running some routes out there today,” Rhule said, adding that Thomas worked in at receiver as well. “We’re going to play Jahad at two or three different positions until we find out where the best position is for him to help the team.
