Big Ben & Other Stuff

... Looky here, Big Ben will start in Arizona this Saturday. I'm not sure how I feel about this, especially given that the preseason didn't seem to do him much good a year ago, but it'll be interesting to see how he rebounds from taking his first hit.

... And here are Dale Lolley's camp notes for Wednesday, and here's what he wrote about Colon a few days ago:
Rookie Willie Colon was playing left tackle today and looks to have moved ahead of Trai Essex and Barrett Brooks on the depth chart. Essex will be out at least a week after injuring his groin midway through the afternoon session. Brooks, meanwhile, has problems of his own after his weekend arrest.
