Did any of these guys play and what was it due to if they didn't?

Isaiah Bean (I think I saw him in pads first half of game and street clothes second half)

Shakial Taylor

Willie McCaleb

Shola Ayinde

Hopefully these are due to some minor injuries and not major ones/discipline/talent.

Bean is injured according the LJW. Not sure on the others.

I've never heard that Ayinde was cleared. He had a pretty nasty ACL tear last August that he was coming off of. I know he's expected to be ready by the season and he was progressing, but I imagine spring football games are not the goal.

For what it's worth, the replay is available on ESPN3.

I can't remember Shak or McCaleb off the top of my head.

I believe coach Beaty said they were gonna hold Ayinde out for precautionary reasons. No sense in rushing his rehab any, so he'll be as close to 100% for the upcoming season.

Believe McCaleb and Taylor both have minor injuries too.
