But then football happened. Jackson is down with a foot injury that doesn't seem to be going away and King has yet another hamstring injury (though Gute alluded to it not being serious). And the group looked to have some questions.
Looking at training camp practices though, you wouldn't know the injuries had taken place. Tony Brown stepped up yesterday and went toe to toe with arguably the best WR in football. He got beat here and there, but he got a few good PBAs. He showed the world he could hang with the best. If he has to start a few games no one will lose sleep. Meanwhile Hollman has rotated in with the 1s and has looked pretty solid. When he was drafted, many saw him as a dart throw who would come in on special teams. It turns out his press-man ability has got him on the field sooner than expected.
If King and/or Jackson have to spend time recovering, the team can absorb it. Last year at this time I don't think you could say that.
