Black & Gold Scrimmage Recap: Defense Reportedly Wins The Day!

Junior Galette may have had the best day. He reportedly was applying consistent pressure and produced two sacks. In other less welcome news, WR Joe Morgan was injured and was reportedly carried from the field. He tweeted afterwards that he is doing well, so maybe we can assume it's not as serious as it sounds. Coach Payton wouldn't give any specifics on injuries.
