I can't say I'm a good judge of that sort of thing. At some point, a big man is a big man. He's a pretty tall dude so he has places to put weight.
Will say he doesn't look close to me.
Brennan Williams has been doing some work on side field, doing intervals on the stationary bike on the sideline that has the arm handles too. Under supervision. He does that during practice. So it isn't just riding the bike, he goes faster than they usually go, then he ices up the knee.
With Duane Brown out for a while, they are going to get a good look at all their healthy tackles.
