T Rodger Saffold is entering the final year of his rookie contract and was switched from left to right tackle after the signing of Jake Long. He was disappointed when the move was made, but he has accepted it and is doing well. Said offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, "In the spring there were some growing pains I think, but he's come back and he obviously worked extremely hard over the break. He's really looked good at right tackle in training camp these four days." Left defensive end Chris Long, who faces him in practice, said, "Rodger impresses me every day. He's done a great job of embracing the change. He's improved throughout the summer."
