looks like Madieu is going to get the start over Deltha

Head coach Marvin Lewis said he expects O’Neal to play. Maybe he could start if the Jets open in three receivers, or if he improves enough at game time. But secondary coach Kevin Coyle isn’t melting at perhaps rookie Madieu Williams getting his first start in the opener.

Views: The Bengals acquired O'Neal as part of their plan to shore up a defense that ranked 24th against the pass last season. The Jets, meanwhile, added wide receiver Justin McCareins to their passing attack in the offseason, so Chad Pennington has to be salivating at the thought of facing an inexperienced secondary.
its still unkown if B. Simmons will start/play, but if he doesnt Caleb Miller should get the nod, w/ Landon Johnson also getting some work
Since our D is our weakness, we need as many healthy guys as we can get
