MACON--- It was just helmets for the Mercer Bears Thursday afternoon. They were on the turf for practice for the first time since the spring.
The Bears woke up early for a running test. They were sprinting back and forth by 7 Thursday morning. Mercer had the rest of the morning off before unit meetings and then practice.
Mercer started with position drills. The first team offense and defense went head-to-head in a non-contact setting.
The Bears will practice again Friday morning at 9.
