Menelik Watson is ready
Last preseason, Watson suffered an achilles’ injury after finally looking like a starting right tackle.
Austin Howard took his spot and played decent. Now, Watson earned his spot. The coaching staff had Watson rolling with the first-team throughout the preseason, despite maintaining that the position was still open.
Now, Watson is the starter headed into week one. Howard should still battle for time, but he should be used as a swing guard and tackle for depth.
Other than that, the offensive line was already set in stone.
