We’ve got some depth chart news, but it’s basically fake. With Captain Munnerlyn on the PUP list (it’s a hamstring tweak, so not for long), Andrew Sendejo still nursing his back injury from the offseason and Chase Ford dealing with a broken foot, things are a little out of wack.
Expect movement upwards from people like Anthony Barr, who Zimmer is keeping on the second team right now because of his extensive absence in the offseason due to UCLA’s quarter system. The middle linebacker position is also in a lot of flux. Though Jasper Brinkley took the majority of the reps today and in the offseason at the Mike, there has been enough rotation here that it seems fairly relevant to indicate that these are soft charts at best.
Jamarca Sanford basically missed all of the offseason as well, due to an injury of his own, so he may move into the first team as the safety opposite Smith. McKinnon may end up taking Asiata’s spot before long.
