Press conference notes

The weekly Monday press luncheon has concluded and a few quick personnel notes before I pass along more later.
Steve Sarkisian said everybody should be healthy for the game and that none of the few injuries suffered Saturday should hold anybody out. That includes DE Darrion Jones, who has a bruised knee/ankle. He may be limited this week, but Sarkisian expects him to play. he also said DT Cameron Elisara, limited by a neck injury last week, made it through the game fine.
— He confirmed the moves in the secondary and said the position will be evaluated during the week before any final lineup is settled. He said David Batts is moving to CB to take advantage of his coverage skills and allow him to think less on the field. Justin Glenn is moving to safety in kind of a switch of guys in part because Sarkisian said he showed good tackling skills in camp, which may bode well there.
— He said the moves of Nick Wood and Craig Noble to the OL were in part for depth reasons but also that he thinks each could have a future there. Each will begin at guard.
— And to clarify something from the LSU game, four true freshmen played — Semisi Tokolahi, Desmond Trufant, Andru Pulu and James Johnson. Demitrius Bronson did not play. However, it is expected that he will and he is not being saved for a redshirt season or anything. Also, Talia Crichton is expected to begin playing as early as this week, as well, as he is listed as a backup defensive end. But as of now, those could be the six true frosh who play this season barring anyone else being forced into duty for injuries or whatever.
More later.
