Don't kid yourself---Clark will be missed. He is like a safety version of Deshea Townsend----they might not be the hardest hitters or the most athletic, but they play smart----which is why they have the starting jobs. Against an offense like Cincy---playing smart is important.

That said, Smith is a very capable back up. Aaron Smith's absence is the one that concerns me more.
