Position battles not won in a day

Though Thursday is the first day of camp practice, head coach Chan Gailey is warning that some of the more popular position battles on offense and defense should not be decided by the media or the fans after day one.

The #2 WR job, the left tackle job and the backup QB job are among the more popular contests that will be waged in camp, and though there will be a guy lining up in all of those roles on Thursday, it doesn’t mean that’s the guy that will ultimately win that job.

“Donald will start there, but we’re still looking at everybody,” said Gailey of the #2 receiver battle. “We’ve not ruled anybody out at this point at that spot. You’ve got to have somebody that walks out there the first day and you’ll all write about it, but we’re going to move people around at different times during camp.

“We’ll try to get equal reps at left tackle, try to get equal reps at quarterback. Just because a guy starts the first day doesn’t mean anything. There are some spots that we understand there’s competition and we’re going to try to make sure we make it as equal as possible going into the season.”
