There is no reason to expose your starters to unnecessary risk of injury at this point in the preseason. The coaches know what the returning starters can do. This first scrimmage was more about finding replacements for starters, and assessing the readiness of last years’ reserves and our new players to fit into the rotation this year. When you see Oliver, Adams, Winchester, Davis, Williams, and Vaughan with as few tackles as they had yesterday and Mulbah Car, Patrick Carr, and Davion Mitchell having the most carries, you know something is up. Sure Bonner had the most catches, but I doubt that he had any more plays than McGowan, Singleton, Jefferson, McLemore, Leday, or Mark. He just was in a position to catch more (probably because he was consistently the best option and the QBs knew he would catch the ball).
