Full injury report is here–and it’s sponsored! (Wtf!)
Baker and Jenkins are full go, meaning our line will not die and has a fighting chance in the first half.
Breeland and Phillips are both out. Somehow Dunbar has been coached up to ‘viable NFL corner’ status, he and Toler should see plenty of playing time in Breeland’s absence. Zone coverage has helped to hide any deficiencies either corner might have.
Cravens is out, Kerrigan is questionable. Su’a has emerged into a bonafide playmaker in coverage. Run defense should stay the same without him. Which is to say Compton will continue to get run over and safeties will be hanging back covering the world’s longest developing flea flicker.
Dashaun Phillips is out. Rookie Kendall Fuller should get another shot at his slot CB spot. Last week didn’t produce enough data for us to know if their is any drop off in coverage between the two. I guess not getting burned by Cody Kessler is a starting point.
Lauvao is questionable. Kouj was solid last week, flashing ability to combo block on outside zone. He’ll have a stiffer test tomorrow if he’s asked to fill in again.
