Here were some of the more interesting comments from Todd Bowles following Sunday's practice:
- Morris Claiborne did not practice for "personal reasons".
- The rookie safeties are "ready to play" and are far along compared to rookie safeties he's seen in the past.
- He expects the defense to be better than last year.
- Sheldon Richardson is "in a good place" and has worked hard all offseason and been focused. Bowles deflected a question about whether he'll be here all year.
- Ijalana got more work today because he was feeling better.
We'll let you know if anyone else says anything interesting.
