SECONDARY

Antonio Cromartie -- 66 snaps, 100 percent

Yeremiah Bell -- 65 snaps, 98 percent

Kyle Wilson -- 59 snaps, 89 percent

LaRon Landry -- 53 snaps, 80 percent

Eric Smith -- 23 snaps, 35 percent

Ellis Lankster -- 14 snaps, 21 percent

Josh Bush -- 2 snaps, 3 percent

Analysis: Some interesting developments here. Landry, who missed only 12 snaps in the first four games combined, sat for 13 plays. Maybe that explains the disagreement (or "miscommunication," as he called it) on the sideline. Scott also played a season-low in terms of percentage. He was removed on most sub packages, shades of last season ... With Landry on the bench, Smith's role was increased ... Rookies Harrison and Bush saw their first action on defense.
