If Reid isn't playing his best players because he's more concerned with the "swing" guys, it'll really harsh my mellow.
I'm basing that off of Stephenson playing some G during the offseason and mini camp and I don't think he would hesitate playing him at G now. But that's my best guess too that he is worried because he is his best backup OT. Albert has come out with minor dings but returned. And with Fisher struggling I'd guess that's holding them back putting Stephenson at G. Just a guess though.
He has given the OL 8 and now 9 games to gel without jugling things. It's been the same 5 since Mini camp. I agree with what you said earlier about the bye week being time to really consider shaking things up with the OL
