Kind of an update on the Grzelcyk situation:

If he's ok, they'll roll with Grzelcyk and keep the more fluid backend Housley prefers. Odd they would already lock Murphy in if they're still worried about him though. Or maybe it's not Murphy with the injury concern? Seems unlikely though.
Really weird situation and oddly handled. Neither Sieloff or Grzelcyk are playing tomorrow and it sounds like the decision comes down to how Murphy holds up. Murphy is healthy enough to be effective, Grzelcyk gets the spot, they need to replace Murphy's defence and physical play, Sieloff gets the spot.
