This should be the most intriguing part of Saturday night's game. Who will start? What will the rotation at safety look like? How will the three candidates respond to live action coming back from injury?
All the injuries are well documented. Savage (torn achilles last season, torn ACL the previous season), McNeil (broken leg), and Etheridge (neck injury) all look to return to the field. They will all get a chance on Saturday.
As long as two of them feel totally comfortable, this season's secondary should be pretty solid. Until that is proven, though, this is a position of uncertainty. There's a ton of valuable experience back there, which should pay off if the health is there.
