There figures to be a rotation to fill his shoes, at least early on. Expect to see a lot of Denico Autry, who usually plays along the defensive line, Rashad Weaver and Ola Adeniyi in Landry’s spot. DeMarcus Walker will take over for Autry upfront when he moves outside. But covering Landry’s absence is more than just about rushing the passer.
The Boston College product was also asked to drop into coverage and was a solid run defender. The former area is the biggest concern with the group set to replace him. Also, moving Autry to the outside will be detrimental to the defensive line, which is at its best when Autry, Teair Tart and Jeffery Simmons are the trio upfront.
