That “Fernando Velasco vs. Brian Schwenke” battle was a bit oversimplified. Although Schwenke was inactive, Rob Turner earned the starting reps. According to Mike Munchak, Turner “did a good job managing the huddle, played a pretty solid game.”

Turner came over as a free agent from the St. Louis Rams and was expected to compete for one of the final roster spots. Turner getting a chance to start at least one preseason game shows that the coaches are serious about this competition. Look for Velasco and possibly Schwenke to get starts before the preseason finale. Chris Spencer may get into that mix.
