From what I noticed he was very solid in run-blocking, for most part Schaub also had good protection so assume he was OK there as well. No penalties or false starts, looking stronger each week. We'll see in a couple weeks after bye if he continues to start.

Did he get the start? I know they announced him as a starter, but I thought Caldwell played the first series.

I saw Caldwell out there early also but was unaware that Jones was to start. OL seemed to protect Schaub & gave him time but did not do so well run blocking imo.

I thought Caldwell came out for the 3rd series. I'm pretty sure Jones was out there for the first one.

Our first two series were so short, you might be right.
