Gerry Dulac goes over the tough time rookie linebacker Jason Worilds is having staying on the field and keeping up to speed with the new defensive wrinkles coming at him daily. Worild\’s hamstring began to deteriorate toward again on Tuesday by the end of practice and you have to wonder if he will even dress Saturday at this point.
