A picture says a thousand words.
Taylor Mays struggled monumentally this week. He was beaten by Anquan Boldin for a TD, laid down a horrendous helmet-to-helmet hit and subsequently got pulled from the game.
George Iloka clocked out with an ankle injury, but he appears to be practicing ahead of Sunday's clash.
Jeromy Miles was left to plug the hole left by Mays and put in a valiant effort. He finished the day with two tackles and one assist.
Marvin Lewis has since commented on the irrelevance of his depth chart, implying that we could see either Mays or Miles start on Sunday.
Miles and Mays both have impressive athleticism that shone on special teams in 2011, but it seems Miles is the more capable of reigning in that power and playing safety effectively.
Reggie Nelson continues to be a force in the secondary and will be integral against Cleveland, given the uncertainty beside him.
Nelson lead the team with seven tackles and one assist on Monday in an impressive display. However, the stats don't show just how many plays Nelson ran himself out of or took a bad angle on. There were many.
The former first-rounder will be relied upon to make some big stops this weekend, but he needs to make sure that his impulsiveness doesn't prove costly.
