LeMichael James NEW KR/PR & WR AJ Jenkins promotion!

LeMichael James NEW KR/PR & WR AJ Jenkins promotion!

Yes on Jenkins, no on James who looked scary returning punts in the preseason and not in a good way.
Jenkins should get a shot at the #4 WR. Not sold on James as a PR. James isn't necessary as a RB this season. Even with Hunter out.
Jenkins might get the nod due to injury. Probably not James.
Coach also said that James played the Sproles role in practice this week. Said he worked on his hand all week and he is getting better. Said kickoffs are a lot easier than punts so I assume he is still having problems with that. I go with Ginn at PR and Williams KR unless he is hurt than I go with Hunter at KR. Wish Jenkins would have got more practice at both this off season so we could have seen if he was an option.

Had Williams not get hurt, Ginn getting cut might have been a possibility.

no way we would cut Ginn right now, no reason for it, at worst he would be inactive but we would have held onto him for depth
No reason to cut Ginn. Backup PRs Williams and Hunter injured. James not worthy/capable.
LMJ has better skills than Ginn. Ginn is like a kicker has 1 job and can't do it! I can't stand Ginn time 4 him to GO!
Don't want to see LaMichael on KR or PR. He looked very uncomfortable in that role during the pre-season. If Hunter misses time, perhaps James gets activated to spell Gore.

Jenkins is more likely to be activated. He showed nice playmaking ability in the pre-season. Could be an additional deep threat for Kaep.

Nice to have so much depth on this team.
I'd like to see if they can do anything to help. I'd love to see LMJ out there more than Jacobs.

Clearly you didn't watch preseason. And I'm not going to hold 1 play against a guy who has been outstanding his entire career on special teams.
Yeah, James was no where near ready in pre-season and fumbled left and right. Ginn should still be the Pr but I probably go with Williams or Hunter at KR. Still, we have to find our answer at KR/PR for next year because Ginn will be gone. He just holds back guys like Jenkins because he takes up a gameday active spot but doesn't contribute at WR.
Williams injury looked more serious. Hunter should be fine. Who gets promoted to what role is still up in the air until the final word on injuries is given.
With Williams and Hunters injuries they both maybe activated. Jenkins will probably be activated if Williams injury is serious as it looked.

Well said. It happens from time to time, even to a guy that is as reliable as Ginn.
