SAN JOSE -- San Jose State senior cornerback Bené Benwikere practiced Tuesday for the first time since being carted off the field with a concussion against Utah State on Sept. 27.

"I'm feeling good," Benwikere said. "Everything's feeling fine."

Benwikere was released after only a few hours in the hospital after being taken from the field on a stretcher and transported to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. He said he lost consciousness on the field for only about a split-second and remembers everything about the game and the play on which he was injured.

"I remember the whole game," Benwikere said. "I remember the play, going in for the tackle. I remember the score. There's not a whole lot I don't remember."

As is often the case, the incident was scarier to watch and appeared more serious than it was.

"It looks scary," Benwikere said. "For me, I didn't think it was that serious. Of course, I didn't know too much right after. I just saw the trainers over me. I wasn't too scared, I wasn't nervous. They warned me the only reason I was getting on a stretcher was for precautionary measures."

Benwikere said he's symptom-free as of now. He worked out Tuesday morning before practice and passed that test to be cleared to practice in pads. He wore a black non-contact jersey, but otherwise wasn't limited.

"I didn't get any headaches," Benwikere said. "Lights are fine. Brightness, noise, it's all fine so I'm doing good."

A decision on whether he'll play Saturday at Colorado State hasn't been made.

"That's still to be determined for precautionary measures, but I'm feeling good and the fact that I was able to practice and do team drills was definitely a good sign," Benwikere said.

Wide receiver Jabari Carr was also back on the field for the first time since suffering a separated shoulder against Utah State. He also wore a black non-contact jersey and participated in team drills.

Freshman safety Brandon Monroe returned to practice for the first time since spraining his ankle before the Minnesota game. He too wore a non-contact jersey.

Coach Ron Caragher cautioned against any of the three being available to play this weekend.

"We can get them going through the movements, but can they contact? That's going to be day-to-day," Caragher said. "At least we're getting them out running around and that's big because half the game is alignment and assignment."

Playing a factor in Monroe's status is the fact that he would be eligible to redshirt if didn't play again this season.

The Spartans were also a lot healthier at running back Tuesday. Jason Simpson, Osirius Burke and Alvin Jelks all were full participants in practice after sitting out last week. Simpson was the only one who played in the Hawaii game, but only participated on special teams. He worked as a second-team running back Tuesday with Jarrod Lawson and Tim Crawley getting the bulk of first-team reps.

SJSU was without backup inside linebacker Ryan Goforth, who wasn't suited up and had his right arm in a sling.
