    Since its Jake's left shoulder (I think?) wouldn't it be a little "easier" on him to put him at right tackle? and put Carey at LT for this game.

    Hopefully they both can play, but I want them to be healthy.

    he might do worse at RT than with the injury than at LT

    The positions aren't interchangeable. They require different skill sets...

    If you can play LT, you can definitely play RT. I'm not worried about him playing RT, I'm more worried about Carey playing LT, but he's done it before. We can also stick Fasano in to help block Peppers

    Probably true. He'd be better off on the left though. On blitz pick up, you're always told to pick up the inside guy first, and let the outside go. I'm sure its the same here. They'd rather keep him on the left, where he still has his right arm to solidify the inside move, and he can flush anything on the left out so that the QB can step into the pocket. If he is on the right, then he would have the inside being his weakness, which is the absolute last thing you want...
