“We’re going to go nice and easy with Todd,” Reid said. “You would like to get him in a game in preseason. If he didn’t, I’d still think he’d be OK (for the opener). He’s a veteran player, but it would be good just to get him up to speed.”

Herremans is fine however it works out.

“I’d like to get in a game now,” he said. “But if I don’t, it’s not the end of the world.”

For Jackson it’s like a fresh start.

“It’s been a long time,” the center said. “It was good to get out there and move around a little bit, snap a football again, bang around with my teammates and just shake off the rust.

“I still think about the last snap when I got hurt. I think about it every day. At some point I’m going to have to stop and start thinking about this season.”

Notes: Safety Quintin Demps, who hurt his knee in Friday’s game, has a contusion and should be back on the field soon, Reid said. Safety Antoine Harris has a LisFranc sprain in his foot and was placed on injured reserve, ending his season.
