Jasper Brinkley started the first two preseason games at middle linebacker.
Brinkley appears to have his nose in front of Audie Cole for the starting job in base packages. "Jasper seems to be a little bit more communicative, and Audie seems to have a little more range," coach Mike Zimmer said. "As far as the running game, they're very close -- and (in) the passing game they're similar." Brinkley will be on a short leash if he does win the job, and may rotate out even on early downs. There are safer IDP situations out there to attack. Aug 21 - 10:34 AM
