OXNARD, Calif. -- Left guard Nate Livings made his training camp debut on Friday after missing the first four practices because of a cut on his foot that had him on the non-football injury list.
“They were just being cautious,” Livings said. “Football is football. I’ve been playing the game for a while and it hurt not being out there.”
Livings took half of the first-team snaps, splitting time with Kevin Kowalski. It was his first on-field work since the organized team activities in May and first time in pads since last year’s season finale at Washington.
“Taking advantage of the time I was off is a big deal, taking more of the mental reps and challenging myself more off the field mentally,” Livings said. “It makes the game a lot easier. You can focus on technical things when you get on the field.”
