Bryan Walters Getting First Team Reps Over Patrick Crayton

I like Bryan Walters, I really do…. but how is this guy stealing snaps from Patrick Crayton? Walters went from a preseason sensation that barely snuck his way onto the roster to a guy that is stealing first team snaps:

WR Bryan Walters filled in for Patrick Crayton (ankle) against the Vikings on Sunday and had two receptions for 21 yards. Crayton has practiced all week and said he is ready to play. Walters, however, took snaps with the first-team offense in team drills on Friday

As good as Walters has been, he still is not the polished receiver that Patrick Crayton is. I still remember Crayton’s explosive play against Denver in which he busted his wrist and ended his season. Walters has not shown he can do that in a regular season game yet.

If Bryan Walters joins the first team, he needs to show that he can produce against first-team players. We already know Patrick Crayton can!

Is Crayton still hurting or is he falling out of favor like he did in Dallas?
