Big Chris has only been back a few days and already his presence is making a difference in run-blocking. That is according to Tomlin. I hope that adding him back into mix will help to start solidifying the OL a little. They desperately need something solid to build on. It sounds as though Kemo my be it.

Tomlin would be referring to Chris Kemoeatu, the presumptive starter at left guard who returned to the field on Monday after spending the first week on the physically unable to perform list with a weak triceps. Playing with a brace, Kemoeatu pulled from his left guard spot to lead Willie Parker into the end zone over the right side of the line of scrimmage on the first play of the drill.[/quote]
