Hedging on Hodges decision: O'Brien admitted he might be asking too much of LB Gerald Hodges to have him handle kick return duties -- "Yeah, probably," he said -- but the coach didn't rule out using Hodges there again. Hodges fumbled a punt that led to an Ohio field goal and missed time on defense with a leg injury. "It's a lot on his plate, and his main role is obviously as our outside linebacker," O'Brien said. "He might or might not be back there this week, but there was a lot on his plate, and I'll tell you, I accept responsibility for that. But we'll move forward and we'll find some guys that can return some punts." Hodges is listed as third-string kick returner, behind Bill Belton and Adrian Amos and ahead of Alex Kenney.
