I hope so too, but if he does it will be his first since he entered college. That's why we got him in round 7 to begin with.

Polk was a UDFA. Bryce Brown was the 7th rounder.

Sounded like Polk wanted out after he was going to be the obvious 3rd stringer, and Kelly obliged. And he may well have found himself a better opportunity. I hope he does well, and we don't miss him.

Yea I really don't see us missing him with the backs they have on the team today. It just struck me that the talking head (apologize that I don't recall which one) was on about how good he thought Polk could be given the right situation and thought the Texans was the right situation.
I liked him. I liked Brown too in situations; but I'm not sure I would want to go into the season with either one being my #1 back.

No Bradford, Ertz, or DeMarco for this game. All out.

I wonder if Bradford is out because Chip doesn't trust the Oline much?

Could be.. or he hasn't figured out the O yet.. or he's not completely healthy.. the latter I think is right.

I think it's a combo of the O line, plus the Ravens joint practices coming up, which Kelly might think is a better gradual way to get Bradford in there.

I'm sure Murray is not playing simply to limit his touches in the pre-season, given how heavily he was used last year. Wouldn't surprise me if they held him out of many practices before the regular season.

Well that's certainly the plan so far. I hope they give Sproles and Mathews a break too.

Somebody has to take the reps. And get used to hitting live again. I think Sproles is enough of a vet that you really don't need that. DeMarco is a physical player by nature, so my concern is two-fold: Is he getting the reps to make the right reads with the Oline, and is he gong to be prepared to HOLD ON TO THE BALL in live action?

Mathews, coming off of injury, I want him getting some live hitting and tackling. To me, he gets a bunch of work in the Pre-Season.

Good points on Murray. He really needs work on the read option so that there are no screw-ups, Bradford too! I think that they both should have played a little, but I guess Chip knows what he's doing.
