Stop me if you’ve heard this one from Dave Wannstedt before:
“He was out a little bit this morning. It’s muscle spasms. I’m hoping that he’ll be out here soon. He’ll be fine; it’s just a matter of making sure that he’s 100 percent before we get him going. He didn’t re-aggravate it, we’re just trying to get it right. I’m not worried about him. He’ll be back in enough time. He came out today with full intentions, and he went through some individual work this morning. He’s fine, we’ll just take it a day at a time.”
Frankly, I’m glad that Wannstedt has stopped projecting him to play the following day. I understand holding Romeus out for precautionary reasons, but now his injury has gone from simply ‘stiffness’ to muscle spasms. No, it doesn’t sound all that serious, but I guess Wannstedt figured that if he kept calling it stiffness, the media would get more suspicious than they already are.
Also backup DE Shayne Hale suffered a minor ankle injury yesterday and was held out of today’s two sessions.
And Wannstedt confirmed that Chris Jacobson has virtually secured the starting spot at LG. The first scrimmage of training camp will take place Saturday. Some actual game action should help decide some of the other available spots. Though, according to Senior Associate AD, E.J. Borghetti's Twitter account, Wannstedt says it will take two scrimmages before the O-Line becomes more solidified.
