Hoomanawanui caught a TD from Sammy in the Baltimore game. But that was with Kendricks sitting out. Maybe they had hoped to showcase Illinois Mike and draw in a trade? Same with Ojinnaka at Guard?
Seems as though with Dahl coming back at G, the team was comfortable with either Turner or Watkins starting at LG and the other backing up.
To be honest, it was somewhat baffling how Ojinnaka was still with the first team considering his play during the preseason.
I'd also feel a lot better if I knew Harvey Dahl's mystery "infection" is just something embarrassing like the clap or a beard infestation, rather than West Nile or whatever. Hmmmm...he did practice a lot with Smith beside him; concussions aren't contagious, are they ? Could he inadvertently have inhaled a fine mist of flop sweat ?
I wouldn't be surprised to read or hear the Patriots have picked up Illinois Mike. The Pats seem to scoop up a lot of TE's.
