Maybe Cam Newton Can Play O-Line?

We now have our first significant injury of the season. From Yahoo Sports via the AP.

No. 6 Florida will be without left tackle Phil Trautwein for Saturday's season opener against Western Kentucky, and he might be out for the season.
Trautwein, a senior captain who started every game for the national champions last season, has a stress fracture in his right foot that could require season-ending surgery.

The loss of Trautwein now means musical chairs on the O-line. Jason Watkins moves from right tackle to left. Redshirt senior Carlton Medder goes from guard to right tackle. That opens a spot for super recruit Maurkice Pouncey at right guard. Left guard remains for Jim Tartt and Drew Miller is still center.
