The San Antonio Commanders hit the practice field Saturday morning with two weeks left until the season opener.

The Commanders open Saturday, Feb. 9, at 7 p.m. against the San Diego Fleet at the Alamodome.

“It was pretty smooth as far as everybody just kind of getting assignments, getting plays called,” Commanders coach Mike Riley said.

The team’s sessions on Sunday and Monday are not open to the public.

“We’re still kind of in training camp mode,” Riley said. “We have a preseason game coming up which will be good for us. But we are really just still trying to do what we need to do for camp.”

Wide receiver Alonzo Moore, who played for Riley at Nebraska, took part in his first practice since being signed by the Commanders. The team had a roster spot open after offensive lineman Jared Machorro was waived (injured) on Thursday.
