WitP: Brashton, Mouton, Pisa, CO

Brashton Satele will not be playing in tonight's preseason game as he continues to recover from a sprained ankle.
Satele (ankle) continues to come along slowly. Ryan thought he could play but didn’t want to rush the undrafted free agent from Hawaii back too soon.
Of course, that probably means he will play. Still salty about the Raiders game!

Ryan Mouton had an up-and-down game in his preseason start.
He gave up a big play in the second quarter when Seahawks receiver Mike Williams caught a short pass in front of him, made a move, and raced 51 yards for a touchdown. Fisher defended the play, however, saying there was an “adjustment in that situation, and Mike is a big strong, receiver.’’ Mouton was in one-on-one as the Titans were caught in a blitz.
Mouton changed his fortune when he intercepted a Charlie Whitehurst pass intended for Williams, and he was in position for other plays as well.

“I thought I played OK, but I could play better,’’ Mouton said. “I can’t make any excuses. I have to make that tackle (on Williams). Other than that play, though. … I am just trying to get better and try and build off tonight.’’
Pisa Tinoisamoa had a good game against San Diego.
Pisa Tinoisamoa played well in his bid to unseat Nick Roach as the starting strong-side linebacker. Going against second-teamers, Tinoisamoa looked like one of the better players on the field.

Roach didn't perform too poorly either. Playing against Chargers scrubs in the third quarter, he had a sack, a quarterback hit and a tackle for a loss. This competition could go down to the third exhibition game.
Another review of Pisa's and Roach's performances:
Pisa Tinoisamoa: The aggression and speed with which he plays stand out. Tinoisamoa belongs on the field.

Nick Roach, with whom Tinoisamoa is competing for the strong-side linebacker job, also did some nice things. But he also lost containment on a run and failed to make a tackle he could have made.
And here's more praise for Chad Owens.
The Alouettes had decided that Owens was strictly a kick returner and wanted to cut his salary accordingly. Owens balked and Argo head coach Jim Barker wasted no time in making a trade for him.

If there were any doubts, Owens made it clear Saturday that he’s a lot more than just a kick returner.

But the fact he became the first Argo receiver this season to top the 100-yard mark (163 to be exact) and piled up a total of 291 yards of offence doesn’t come close to telling the whole story.
