Observations from the 1st depth chart:
- It’s worth noting that Peyton Manning is still listed as the starting QB even though he is on the PUP list.
- Also worth noting is that Jeff Linkenbach is the starting LT over Castonzo. That will change soon.
- Other changes I expect to happen before the Houston opener:
- I think Justin Tryon will earn the number 2 corner over Jacob Lacey.
- I think that, the way Ben Ijalana has been playing, its only a matter of time before he is starting.
- I think its ridiculus that Ernie Sims is 3rd-string LB and Tommie Harris is the 5th DT. Both those will change as well
