Update: McGloin replaced by Williams after half-time. The Guardians are in disarray.

Update: McGloin returns to the game in the second quarter.

Matt McGloin took a third-down sack in the first quarter, suffering a ribs injury in the process. McGloin got headlines last week after questioning the coaching during in-game interviews and eventually was benched in a blowout. Marquise Williams took over last week but couldn’t get much going, especially through the air.

Williams is a strong running quarterback, so we will see if he can get anything going in that department. McGloin appears like he could come back in this game at some point, so Williams may be playing to stay on the field at this point.
