Veteran Jason Allen has taken the starting cornerback job from second-year player Sean Smith. Smith and Vontae Davis were expected to repeat as starters this season, but after allowing several big plays during the preseason, Smith was demoted. Smith started all 16 games in his rookie season, a franchise first for a cornerback. Here’s hoping the switch will result in less big plays to opposing wide receivers during the season.
Injury Update: Jake Long and Channing Crowder have been working out solely on exercise bikes. Long hurt his knee in the preseason finale, and Crowder has an undisclosed injury.
