Former SMU cornerback Bryan McCann didn't get called up from the practice squad to sit idly on the sidelines for depth purposes in case ailing cornerback Terence Newman's rib cartilage tear got the best of him again.
No, McCann will make an immediate impact on special teams against the Packers Sunday. He will serve as the primary kickoff returner in place of the injured Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, who is out four to six weeks with a high ankle sprain. McCann will also start on the kickoff and punt coverage teams.
