RE: Bryant versus Woods
Sometimes the player less likely to be lept gets more playking time, so that the coaches can evaluate just what they have... before cuttign him. If they know that they want to keep Woods, but are unsure of Bryant, then they would need to see more/as much of Bryant as they could, before cutting him.
A few years ago, this happened with two of the back-up linebackers (the names escape me). Anyway, the LB that I thought played better got almost no snaps in the second & third game; meanwhile, the other LB played a lot. Then... that other LB got cut.
