The Mountain that walks will get his first NFL start in the state of his alma mater on Monday night. According to ESPN 970’s David Todd, Steve McLendon will not play Monday night and Dan McCullers will start.
McLendon has been battling a nagging shoulder injury and did not participate in practice today. McCullers has only played 25 total snaps this season. this will be the fourth game that the rookie defensive lineman has been active for. I expect he’ll split reps at NT with fan favorite DL Cam Thomas.
