Shoulder injury and out of practice two days. That's concerning.

If Brockers can't go.. who starts at his spot? Fox or Smart? Do you run Gaines with SJD on first downs together to keep enough beef on the line in the run game?

That's sounds good,,, putting both Gaines and SJD,,, to clog up the middle,
have Fowler AD next to each other and on the other side, have either Ebukam or Matthews... and rotate Smart and Fox with either Gaines or SJD,,,,
I would even put Matthews on the ILB on some plays.

But they must keep one of those two NT in the middle to keep it clogged up if the get rotated out...

Every time they took out SJD the last game,,,
they spread the D-line out and the middle was wide open,,, We can't do that with Kamara....

Brockers is gone next year. They need the money for better players.

They can get a good run stuffer for half his salary.

Gaines inactive last week. IMO, he ain't starting anytime soon, injury or no.

Brockers has been a better player. He was good at DE when they moved him there in 2017. They say he was banged up in 2018 and it seems he was at some point in game 1 this year too.

Having said that yeah I can see them moving on next year. If nothing else it's starting to look like he gets banged up too much.

However replacing him next year means a high draft pick, right? Because you can't count on a lower picked rookie to handle that position. Maybe a free agent but you have to think that would cost...at a time when they also have to think about paying a few of their own FAs. So a rookie would be better that way.

As for this week, if he can't play, who takes his place? IMO probably Fox. Who is a little light for base 3/4 DE but basically, that's who they have. I dunno...if he plays and can handle the position maybe that fixes things for next year too...though he's also a free agent after the season. Maybe it's just time to draft a couple of DL high.
