LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The quarterbacks at Kansas have been hit throughout spring, from the front and from behind, hard and not so hard, in the pocket and while scrambling during their practices.

No sense is making them wear bubble wrap for the annual spring game.

Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis wants to see what Montell Cozart, Jake Heaps and T.J. Millweard can do when the team plays its glorified scrimmage on Saturday at Memorial Stadium. And it's hard to get an accurate read on the intriguing race for the starting job when the quarterbacks wear the red jerseys that prevent defensive players for laying a hit on them.

Weis said it's the first time he's had quarterbacks go live in a spring game.
