Per Jeff Duncan via twitter.
jeffduncantp Payton said he thinks Morstead will be OK. Didn't seem worried about any others except Fujita. Said R.Ayodele is now starter at nose tackle.

Man, Clancy looked great in the pre-season and against the Lions. I haven't really noticed Ayodele. I don't know if that's good or bad.

I think he has been doing great, Ayodele has the scoop for TD and ha been getting pressure. I want to know what has happened to Hargrove?

Hargrove is usually in on passing downs.

Not much difference in the quality of play between Clancy and Ayodele, and that is a good thing. Ayodele had the opportunity and hold up to it. Still, as he gets healthier, we will see more and more of Clancy in the rotation.

Good news after all, our staff have confidence in both nose tackles to start at any point.

That makes for a strong rotation. I thought Clancy was one of our best defenders and now he has been beat out not because of his bad play, but because of Remi's good play. That is how you want something to go down.

I love that no one is safe on this team. Simply put, the best player plays. Congratulations to Remi. He deserves it.

Clancy has been hurt for weeks, so Remi has been the starter. not a huge surprise to be coming off an injury and not ready to take the starting job yet. It's what happened to Nesbit last year when Nicks took over and kept the job.

I like competition.

I wish he didn't make the team because I personaly don't like him for being an arse towards my wife at her job. But oh well.
