Rookie Mike Jenkins got to run with the first team when Newman left. Campo said Jenkins was a lot better today than yesterday.
James Marten was running with the 2nd team today. Last year’s 3rd round pick is now a guard. Not good considering he was a tackle when he was drafted out of Boston College.
2007 4th rounder Doug Free is the 2nd team left tackle.
Look for Tony Curtis to have a bigger role in the offense. He’s the second tight end, but they have him running with the 1st team in two TE sets.
**UPDATE Newman has a strained groin. It is not a pull. Wade Phillips says he is day to day.
