Earlier in training camp, general manager Jerry Angelo said he didn't believe Major Wright would be able to start after breaking his finger and missing the final three preseason games. His opinion hasn't changed, although the rookie could assume a starting role later in the season.
"That will be a coach's call when they feel he's ready to start," Angelo said. "Maybe he could've been that exception to the rule as a rookie and he could've come in here and started. Safety is a tough position to start at. It's not like the corner[back] position. There's a lot more going on in terms of learning and adjusting. But I feel as long as he's out there practicing he'll get playing time and we'll see where it goes from there."
