UTEP showed off a new possible offensive weapon with Aaron Jones running the wildcat formation for the first time in yesterday's practice. Freshman quarterback Kavika Johnson also got some reps with the second team out of the wildcat.

Kugler says the staff has been studying hard on the concepts of the wildcat over the summer, and seems pleased with the progression of the newly minted scheme.
He also gives a few injury updates including starting center Eric Lee who had to be tended to by paramedics before the start of yesterday's practice.
Another awful state to practice. Eric Lee had some sort of episode during team stretch. Jersey was cut off, emt called #utepfootball— Bretbloomquist (@Bretbloomquist) August 12, 2015
May be elevation/heat/hydration issue. Lee is sitting now and first responders are here. He's draped in iced towels #UTEPFootball— Bretbloomquist (@Bretbloomquist) August 12, 2015
Dawn Hearne: He'll be all right. He's one of those who's too tough for his own good" could be back at practice tomorrow #UTEPFootball— Bretbloomquist (@Bretbloomquist) August 12, 2015
The head man also talks about how Cedrick Lang could possibly be a factor this season via his strong camp, and gives an overall update on the tight ends.
Junior Offensive lineman Jerome Daniels talks about the offensive line and what potential recruits should expect under Kugler and his staff. Daniels is listed on the depth chart as UTEP's starting left tackle this season.
Senior cornerback and BYU transfer Trent Trammell also gives us some insight on how his camp experience and transition into a UTEP Miner is going so far.
UTEP will go through its second two-a-day session if fall camp today, with a 9:45 a.m. workout, followed up with an afternoon workout in shorts.
