    Saw on rotoworld he took all first reps in practice although I think it was probably for day he missed practice.

    I can't imagine Hitchens over McClain but there we go with that wasted fourth round pick.

    They've been taking it slow with McClain, so could be that they are just resting him. I don't think there's a doubt the staff is rooting for McClain.

    Well who else is there if Holloman and McClain aren't playing? Orie Lemon?

    Hitchens is likely to be getting the work on Saturday, so he's getting the snaps now.

    I like what I have heard you guys posting here. I just don't trust a rookie linebacker to have the head to transition through the shortly arriving maze of scheming and veterans that he will have to encounter. Let him first get up to walking speed, past this crawling stage.

    Good kid, good instincts, and a little aggressive with coverage skills. Now he just must grow.

    Key words = in practice. Don't read that much into it. The entire front 7 is very fluid.

    I think they'll both get their share of the defensive snaps in the Miami game. The staff has been monitoring McClain's activity closely in practice to protect him from ovextending his level of conditioning. His return to readiness is simply a slow and arduous process. It's entirely possible he may not be ready in time for game one vs. San Francisco. He'll be ready when his body indicates the time is right. As badly as the staff wants him manning the MLB position, I'm sure they won't delay using him whenever the time is right.
