Quinshad Davis back at full strength, just not full speed

Quinshad Davis is back to full strength. But as the UNC wide receiver learned Monday on the opening day of the Tar Heels’ preseason football camp, he still has work to do before he’s back to full speed. “It’s a challenge getting back into football shape,” Davis said after his first organized practice since breaking the tibia in his right leg against Rutgers in the Quick Lane Bowl last December.

Day 1 different for Tar Heels in multiple ways

The way the Tar Heels told it Monday at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, their chemistry experiment is working, because not even knuckleheaded moves by one of their football brethren has diluted the formula they said they discovered after a dud of a 2014 season finally fizzled in Detroit. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Titans' Zach Brown ready to make up for lost time

The first day in pads can be a bit daunting for an NFL player. It’s even more daunting when you haven’t had full contact in almost 11 months and you’re testing how well a torn pectoral muscle has healed. That’s what Titans linebacker Zach Brown was up against on Sunday. And he came through the test just fine. Brown was injured on just the fourth play of the 2014 season. (Nashville Tennessean)

Quinshad Davis hopes for only good breaks in 2015

On Monday, Tar Heels' wide receiver Quinshad Davis returned to the field after months rehabilitating a fractured right tibia. If Davis was moving a bit slower than before, quarterback Marquise Williams noticed that his routes were crisp. "He looked great running routes," Williams said. "I told him, 'Quinshad, you're running some of the best routes,' and he said, 'Yeah, I got my legs back under me.'" (WRAL Sports Fan)

Gio Bernard looks to shine no matter when, where

This time last year, Giovani Bernard prepared for a season as primary back carrying the bulk of the load in the running game. Jeremy Hill brought with him second-round potential, but this still would be Bernard's opportunity to play the part of featured back. Midway through the season, he learned exactly what being a feature back in the NFL feels like. It hurts. (Cincinnati Enquirer)

Sylvester Williams draws Broncos coaches' praise

Sylvester Williams recalled the moment that explains how significantly his career has shifted over the past year. At the end of Saturday's practice, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak singled him out in front of the team for his relentless effort. Williams' progress remains central to the defensive line. If the nose tackle reaches his potential it would echo across the front seven. (Denver Post)

Robert Quinn Striving for Improved 2015

Robert Quinn has been dominant since he arrived in the league, though his breakout season was undeniably in 2013 when he set a new franchise mark with 19 sacks. But an underrated aspect of the defensive end’s game may be his ability to create fumbles, at which he continued to excel in 2014. The coaches gave him credit for seven FFs last season, giving him a total of 15 for his career. (St. Louis Rams)

UNC QB Marquise Williams Ready to Lead

For the first time in his career at the University of North Carolina, Marquise Williams starts training camp as the undisputed starting quarterback. It’s his job and his team. “I’ve got to step out and play with confidence," Williams said Monday, as the Tar Heels met for the first practice for the 2015 season. "It’s my team, but it’s really about the other guys around me.” (WRAL Sports Fan)

Six Breakout Redshirt Freshmen

With nine early enrollees in this year's freshmen class and a few more newcomers that can make impacts this fall, attention turns to the group of freshmen that enrolled a year ago and redshirted. Some could have helped last season, but in the best interest of the program's future they redshirted. Each is better off as a result. So here are six redshirt freshmen who can have breakout seasons. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Q&A: North Carolina WR Ryan Switzer

North Carolina opened practice Monday, and with that, receiver Ryan Switzer gave his first media interviews since last season. Switzer, dynamic as a punt returner in 2013 and the team's leading receiver in 2014, has much higher hopes for his team and himself headed into this season. We touched on the team's chemistry, expectations, and his own goals as a returner and receiver. (ESPN.com)

Larry Fedora Monday Post-Practice Quotes

Any particular freshman catch your eye today? "Not any of them that were brand new, except Mike Hughes. Ty'son Williams and J.K. Britt, those guys that were here in the spring --- those guys, they look they've been with us. The other guys ---- they were struggling. But that's the way it is. The more comfortable they get and as they start relaxing, they'll help this football team." (Carolina Blue)

Extra Points: The Power of The Team

Tar Heel coach Larry Fedora and his staff welcomed around a hundred players Monday for the first day of preseason practice.
