Continued: Turner says all is well with Bridgewater

The first depth chart of the season was released Tuesday. Let’s just say Zimmer’s excitement level about this didn’t match the media’s.

The team’s initial release listed the starter at left corner as Captain Munnerlyn/Josh Robinson. What’s up with that, Coach?

“Munnerlyn missed a bunch of time early [in camp] and Robinson [has] missed a bunch of time late,” said Zimmer, referring to two of the hamstring injuries that have dogged his secondary. “So let them keep [competing]. … We just line guys up and go.”

Later in the day, the team’s website listed Munnerlyn as the starter and Robinson as the top backup.

Seven rookies are listed among the top two at their positions. Linebacker Anthony Barr is a starter, while undrafted left tackle Antonio Richardson, Yankey, Bridgewater, defensive end Scott Crichton, weak-side linebacker Brandon Watts and cornerback Jabari Price all are listed as top backups.

Crocker move planned

A day after he reached out and essentially pulled 34-year-old safety Chris Crocker out of retirement for a third consecutive season, Zimmer said the move had “kind of been planned all along, to be honest with you.”

“He’s been with me for [the past seven years],” Zimmer said. “He’s a good kid. He’s smart. Extremely smart. There’s a pretty good relationship there. His wife is pregnant, so he needs to name his kid Mike.”
