Anybody else key in on him when he replaced Scott in the Eagles game?

I thought really blocked Trent Cole well (which is no small task). Gilbert showed enough of a kick slide to ride Cole past the QB and the nastiness to bury him when he got the chance. It was only a few plays (parts of two drives) until he was hurt. But, I was impressed.

Other thoughts?

It pretty good sign that he was the #2 LT, but then again, thinking about it, would of it been Hills if he wasnt getting tried out as a guard?

I tried to key on his play but he was in for what 3 snaps? This week's game could be big for him, if Scott can't play and he starts.

Could we see a youth movement on the OL with talent?

he played more like 8-12 snaps.

I don't expect much from Gilbert until he gets his knee right.
