We may want to keep him at 1 spot, especially since he seems to be mastering it now.
Bingo, and like I said in an earlier post... If we slide Peat over to LT then we weaken the interior of the O-Line and that's the pressure that Drew struggles with the most.

My insider tells me Armstead will be back in September.

Yea I would say our guard positions are more important than our left and right guard positions the way Drew steps up in the pocket.

Barnes has apparently looked better since dropping weight. Maybe he can hold it down. Be nice if the rookie could get er done. Then we'd be cooking with some serious gas

The elite pass rushers in the NFL aren't coming up the middle, they are coming off the edge.

lol I meant guards not L and R tackle. If I had my choice of where to elite players go I would want them at guard. The LT still needs to be on point, not saying that position doesn't need attention.

Apparently it was just a freak thing. He was working with tackling dummies and fell in an awquard position on a mat.
I have had 3 surgeries to repair labrum and rotator cuff. It sucks. It was ten years ago and I still feel it sometimes. They literally had to drill a button into my bone and loop it around it.

Bright side is maybe this will be it. As bad as injuries have been the past several years odds say we are due for a break.

On a side note I have torn a few labia in my lifetime.

I'd choose the latter (tackle). Circle back to last season. When Armstead was injured, Peat moved from GUARD to LEFT TACKLE. Coach Roushar plugged in someone else to play G. Again, the nasty edge rushers in the NFL are coming off the edge, not up the middle.

I think Peat will see a lot of time at tackle to protect #9's blind side.
