Last week when Kolton Miller was injured on the opening drive, it instantly sent the offensive line into chaos. First it was utility man Ian Silberman came in to play the spot, then the team moved left guard Kelechi Osemele outside. The results weren’t great.
While Miller tried to make it work, he gave up a sack. When Silberman came in at right tackle, he gave up a sack. And when Osemele moved over from guard, he gave up a sack.
Putting any reserve in the game without a week of practice at the position is not ideal. Putting Silberman — who just a week before was the reserve center — or moving the left guard over in the middle of the game is usually not going to work out well.
“There’s a lot of conversation involved amongst the coaches, with Tom Cable specifically when it comes to the offensive line position(s),” said offensive coordinator Greg Olson.
