A change

Not surprisingly, for the first time this season, free safety Thomas DeCoud is not a captain. DeCoud was pulled from the starting lineup, along with wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Robert Jordan, for violating team rules. DeCoud had been a captain for all 12 regular season games, along with tight end Craig Stevens. Today’s captains are Stevens, running back Justin Forsett, linebacker Greg Van Hoesen and cornerback Syd’Quan Thompson.
