Steppin' to the AM: Diehl fired up
By Ohm Youngmisuk
David Diehl is well aware of what his critics have been saying about him.
And the proud vet is ready to show the "haters" that he has plenty left in his tank. Diehl came into camp at a lean 304 pounds and he's incredibly motivated to start at right tackle this season. His main competition -- rookie Justin Pugh -- has been out the last few days recovering from a concussion. James Brewer, who has been getting first-team reps at right guard in place of the injured Chris Snee, took second-team right tackle snaps on Saturday.
We'll see today how Pugh is feeling as well as how Corey Webster (groin) and Hakeem Nicks (groin) are doing. The two vets sat out practice on Saturday.
