Oh please. Don't read into it. Obviously the guy is working hard and they threw him a bone. Right thing to do. Next on the agenda for Okoye: go to sleep, get up at 6 am and do it all over again.
It's a real positive that he's doing what's asked of him with no flinching, no ego. THAT is what may get him a spot on practice squad and maybe if there are injuries a few games on the 45. I honestly am impressed that a 21 year old with no big school experience would last this long in a difficult environment populated with bullies larger than he is.
It's not just the physical training that he's missed. It's the mental torture of being in a big school high pressure environment. But he's handling it very well.
