Default Re: Barwin moves to SLB-Mercilus moves to WLB

General manager Rick Smith

Quote:
(on the changes in defense due to OLD Brooks Reed’s injury) “You start with the injury and we’re fortunate that we’re going to get Brooks back. He has a very predictable rehab process, and he’s diligently working at that. We will get him back. At this time of year, for all NFL teams, it’s how do you adjust to injuries at this time, how do you continue to play at a high level and if you’re not, how do you start to work toward that? Whitney (Mercilus) is a natural pass-rusher obviously so he fits at the Will linebacker position. I think we brought him along slowly, and what he’s shown is he’s productive when he plays. We expect he will continue to do that. And Bryan (Braman) is a guy that will have to back up both sides. You go back to last year and really Connor (Barwin) and Brooks played predominantly the whole season so you can play games with just outside guys, but we certainly felt good about Bryan and his ability to come in and function. He’s playing well on special teams right now. So, just a part of what happens this time of year in the NFL.”
