"If that's true, that's good work for us. The game maybe can slow down when we get into real-live situations. You hope it does."

CATO CAME out to practice Thursday afternoon and found a curious addition to his helmet - a miniature camera.
The camera didn't stay atop his helmet the entire practice, but it was there for enough drills to offer a different perspective for his coaches. Coach Doc Holliday said they decided to give it a try so the coaches can get an idea of the flow of the game through Cato's eyes.
"We're trying to see what he sees at times," Holliday said. "We're trying to experiment a little bit. It's just a camera where we can see, in different drills, what he sees and why he makes certain decisions. We'll take a look at it and see if it gives us an edge.
Cato said wearing the camera was a little awkward Thursday, but it doesn't weigh down the helmet or make it any bulkier. It'll be interesting, though, for the coaches to watch practice through Cato-vision.
"I see a lot of stuff on the field," the quarterback said.

LINEBACKER Kent Turene underwent surgery on his injured ankle, Holliday said. Turene injured the ankle last week during practice.
"He didn't break his ankle, but he had to get a little thing fixed there," Holliday said. "We wanted to make sure it was fixed so he was good to go in June and July. He'll be fine."
Turene sat out last season as an academic non-qualifier and practiced for the first time in a Marshall uniform this spring.
