Ed Orgeron spoke to the media on Monday and was asked about the defensive tackle rotation now that senior Neil Farrell rejoined the team two weeks ago.

Orgeron said that Farrell is still working himself back into shape and could be a starter but is not sure if he will be ready for the season opener vs. Mississippi State.

Senior Glen Logan, sophomore Apu Ika, and freshman Joe Evans are the top three guys at defensive tackle, according to Orgeorn.

Q. The defensive tackle rotation and how that is shaping up with Neil Farrell back, how has he looked in his return, and then just how do you see that shaping up with all those guys?

ED ORGERON: Yeah. Neil is earning his way back, hasn't been in pads yet because of the acclimation period. Still has some conditioning to do. Obviously we all know Neil can play. How fast he returns and how fast he works his way up the depth chart is basically up to him. And he's come back with a great attitude and wants to work. If Neil is in shape and he's working, Neil could pass, be a starter for us. He's that good. But I can see him starting to get some game reps. I don't know if he's going to be ready. I think Tuesday and Wednesday are going to be some big days for him. But I see Glen Logan, Apu Ika and Joe Evans, rotating the top 3 guys right there, and then maybe see Soni in there, maybe see Jaquelin Roy in there. So we got some options there. We got Eric Taylor that can play. So there's a lot of guys that we can put in the game, but I think the top three are the guys that I talked about.
