I guess we had an extra cdn on last week's roster as we've removed one and replaced him with an international.

If our defense does it's job, this should be a guaranteed win.

Things of interest:

Loffler on the roster despite not practicing. It's either smoke and mirrors and he's going to be out for awhile or he's good enough to play on Thursday. Okpalaugo in but behind Jeffcoat. Competition is a wonderful thing and good on Jeffcoat for making the most of his opportunity. Wonder how bad Walker is nicked. Fogg at halfback is interesting considering they haven't played him there forever. Won't look great on the coaching staff if the best guy for the job was here all along. Alexander on the corner should be better. Carmichael likely makes the gameday roster because we need an extra DB. Will we have 4 defensive ends in the game? Scratches: Foketi and Ekakatie?

That exact halfback spot. But he was replaced midway through the year and never really got a sniff there again.

OK so it's not a new position for him at the very least he should be able to play as well or better than Carmichael who looks to be playing as a back up HB in this game!

Carmichael is listed as the backup HB because that's where we tend to list our spare DB. I'm not sure there's any rationale for listing him there, verses say corner where Carmichael has been playing more recently. I guess it doesn't really matter if we have an injury, guys will shift and Carmichael will enter the game. I don't think it necessarily has to be at that HB spot though, they're more comfortable playing him at field side corner.

Yep, he was "less terrible" at corner, but even that debateable.

I'm really interested to see how Fogg does at halfback. I think I'd rather have Walker there but I haven't seen Fogg there is so long I'm not sure what we'll get. Could be an awesome fit, could be as bad as Carmichael.

Fogg was inconsistent last season in the secondary...showed flashes of brilliance, but also struggled at times.

Well, that's the DB group I wanted at the start of the year, let's see what happens...

Scratches: Foketi and Ekakatie?

Can't be, we took a Canadian off the roster for an import. Will have to be two imports scratched this week. Foketi and I have no idea who the other would be. Carmichael is probably safe because we need a backup DB... unfortunately looks like it might be Poop, unless Okpalaugo isn't quite ready to play or something.

for the record, Fogg was starting at HB until our week 18 bye last year. Heath and Johnson started the last two games and the playoff game
