IIRC, Brown has some minor injury. Probably be back next week.

Seems like they are rotating the LT?

Maybe it has something to do with him telegraphing plays.

Kubiak said in pregame that Brown doesn't have the conditioning to last
much longer than 45+ snaps. They are just trying to help the kid out.

Wow. There seems to be a problem somewhere.

How does he lack the conditioning? It's week 6, WTF!?!

He was taken out cause he was sucking ass. I was glad to see Salaam in there, don't know about you guys but I was getting sick of seeing Schaub get killed every week.

Ive read in the past that most rookies have trouble with their conditioning. They arent used to the pace of the NFL and they wear out quicker.

I imagine its harder for linemen..both offensive and defensive.. especially the big guys on the oline.

Still..probably means that Brown is carrying too much weight or something.. though that is just baseless conjecture.

I'm sure that's true, but VTech doesn't have some lax conditioning program. Not that I know of anyway.

Interesting that Adibi (from VTech) is having problems getting on the field as well because of health issues.

Now I know rookies run into the rookie wall, but geez...it's only the 6th week of the season.

Rookie wall seems to be an excuse. Do all 1st round tackles start playing part time before the midpoint of the season? I can't say that I've noticed it before.

When did LT's get put on a rotation, did I miss that memo?

That's about the time Amobi hit it last year.

Well, we have a decent back up. Its almost a perfect scenario for Brown. He hass done some good and bad things, but it is a different game than he's use to. I like what hes done so far, so Im ok with it. Just get in shape.

I thought Butler was ahead of Salaam, though, now that I think about it
