Foster: Don't expect 100 percent play at Pro Bowl
The AFC and NFC squads took team photos at a resort on Oahu's west side before practicing separately on a 50-yard field in front of family, friends and some fans.
AFC defenders played a little more defense than in two prior practices. During seven-on-seven drills, Kansas City safety Eric Berry picked off a Manning pass and Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie intercepted Houston quarterback Matt Schaub. On one play, Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck gave the ball to Foster, who looked downfield to throw a pass but didn't.
"Throw that," Colts linebacker Robert Mathis dared Foster.
"I want to make sure Ray Anderson's paying attention," a Denver coach shouted to the players after Jets safety LaRon Landry broke up a pass, referring to the NFL executive who earlier this week said the league would make a decision about the Pro Bowl by April. Anderson was at the practice.
Wide receivers A.J. Green and Victor Cruz said part of practice is about getting the timing and rhythm right between players.
"It's just getting comfortable with the plays, getting comfortable with the little nuances of the playbook really quickly and once you get acclimated, it's fairly easy," said Cruz, the New York Giants star.
