I hope I didn’t get your hopes up with that title, because I can understand how you might think that this move actually improved the roster, when in fact, it didn’t. The team traded rookie defensive end Hall Davis to Washington in exchange for FB/TE Dennis Morris. I have to say, I don’t really understand the move. Apparently, Morris is more of a H-back, but I cant imagine he will crack the roster at either fullback or tight end. He isn’t better than Mike Karney as a fullback, and if there is one thing we have learned this preseason, it’s that we have some pretty solid young tight ends on this roster. I doubt if Davis would have made the team either, but but whatever.
In other news, it sounds as if Steven Jackson is ready for the regular season. Jackson said today that he would be fine with not playing in the team’s final preseason game this week, but he might still get a few carries. Let’s be honest… If Steven says he is ready, I believe him.
In some injury news, it looks like rookies George Selvie and Eugene Sims are both healthy, so that’s good news for the defense. I still love Selvie, so hopefully this injury didn’t hurt his chances to make the squad. Also, OG John Greco is back at practice and he hopes to get some snaps on Thursday. I’m not ready to give up on Greco just yet, but he needs to prove he can consistently stay healthy pretty soon or he might be out of a job.
