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
