DeMeco Ryans said that he assumed he was still wearing the headset even though there may be some downs when he isn't on the field.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) September 7, 2012
We can imagine whatever we want about how people are playing, but if Ryans doesn't even know for sure if he's the headset guy two days before the game, this is not a good situation. All of this LB carousel chatter coming out of Novacare is distressing. Now they're talking about putting Chaney in at Ryans' spot in the nickel when his coverage instincts are terrible and he's been hurt almost all preseason. I might be getting anxious over nothing but this shed serious doubt on Ryans for me. Thoughts?
