“I think they’re fine,” Guenther said. “I think it’s little minor stuff, typical twists and turns. That’s all.”

Iloka went down after making a play on wide receiver Alex Erickson. He slammed his hand into the ground as soon as he fell and limped off. After being evaluated by trainers, Iloka watched from the sideline with ice on his right knee.

Smith went down about 20 minutes later, and trainers appeared to be checking his right foot. With only a few minutes left in practice, Smith and Iloka both left on a cart.
