Shep suffers muscle pull

It was about a third of the way through practice and Kelvin Sheppard was covering a running back in 1-on-1s when he reached for his left hamstring. He did not return to practice after that. Head coach Chan Gailey provided an update after the Sunday night practice.

“Shep pulled (a muscle) about the first third of practice and seems to be the worst of the three,” said Gailey. “They say he pulled a muscle in his leg.”

When Gailey said worst of the three, he meant all three of his top three draft choices. Marcell Dareus exited practice late with a muscle cramp and was held out as a precaution. Second-round pick Aaron Williams got kicked in the back of the head after receiver Paul Hubbard went head over heels on a pass play in which Williams was covering him. Dareus and Williams are both expected to be fine.
