Glad that he has recovered from his back injury. Let's hope he stays healthy :)
Has Cannon been getting any snaps this season?
I think Cannon took some snaps in the opener against the Titans, where Vollmer was eased in, but after that is has been spotty. Reiss had a snap count for the O-line maybe a week ago, and off the top of my head Cannon had played about 10 % of the snaps.
Back to the topic, Seabass is a great RT, I'm just always worried he'll go down. Let's hope he can keep it going all the way to New Orleans.
The O-line is playing a huge role this season, and IMO Solder, Vollmer, and "under the radar"-Wendell are big time contributors. Considering how nervous we were (or at least I was) at the start of the season, having lost the starting center, starting RG, starting LT, and having the starting LG return from ACL-injury, it is just amazing.
The reason why i'm asking about Cannon is because he's basically Vollmer's backup. He didn't really do so well during pre-season. Had high expectations for Cannon; especially because I was interested in seeing if he had the ability to help w/ run blocking; and obviously, protecting Brady. If Vollmer goes down, Cannon simply hasn't shown that he can hold Vollmer's jock strap to date.
