Seems like he will play the RT position regardless of which tackle gets injured.
I think they will do what they've done which is move butler to LT. They probably trust him more to handle that side.
Strongly agree. Even draft scouts were speaking of Newton not being able to handle the LT position at the NFL level because he demonstrated limited quickness and lateral mobility. He should do fine at RT, but like Winston, he may have problems with around the end speed rushers.
