    Has anyone heard if Ben's getting any reps yet? Would hate to see him miss all the OTAs. I know Dennison said it's no big deal but that's time he can never make up.

    Still doesn't look like he has done much. But it's at least good to see him out there. Though his hammy will not be truly tested until TC since there will be no contact/resistance until then. Hopefully, it stands up to the task.

    He'll be fine. If he can sprint during OTAs, TC shouldn't be much different.

    I'm going to pay much more attention to coaches comments about his pass blocking much more than anything that's said about him knowing where to run. Pass Blocking is the big hurdle he'll have to overcome in order to get on the field when the bullets are live.

    Good news, sounds promising. b0ng, I agree, GK has always put a premium on RB pass protection. I'm just glad it's not in the form of #22 any longer.

    On another note... How long before they clean the roster slate of all the unrestricted free agents? I'm so tired of seeing them still listed. Does it happen around the time of the first cuts?

    I can't speak to his knowing assignments, BUT if I remember correctly, he performed well in pass blocking drills at the Senior Bowl.
