LaRon Landry says he missed Monday's OTA session due to a family issue but plans to be around here. Coach Jim Zorn didn't make a big deal out of his absence and Landry was back with the first-team defense in practice.
Zorn said thus far he has been unable to reach corner Shawn Springs, who has not reported for this session of OTAs. Springs has been working out in Arizona and has told associates that his plan was to show up for the start of training camp but not voluntary workouts.
Santana Moss was as up front as can be about his "flu" that caused him to miss Monday's session. His "sickness" was indeed a product of a weekend of birthday celebrating he said, but his teammates haven't given him a hard time about it because it was to be expected
"All they did is laugh because they knew it was going to happen like that," Moss said. "I told them you think you're still young and you can still hold up, but they all know what time it was. Have to chalk it up and be ready the next day."
Zorn still has a big arm. The former Seattle star QB unleashed some throws at the end of practice, failing to connect with Moss on one attempt, trying to pick on corner Fred Smoot, who has a tendency to trash talk just a lil bit in case you were somehow late to that party. "Smoot was the guy that I wanted," Zorn said. "We've got a little competition going and he's got me 1-0 right now."
