The 6-4 Pugh played his rookie season at a little over 300 pounds. Pugh said he did not add the weight for a potential move to guard.
Pugh never mentioned the injury during the season.
"Right now, he's the right tackle," Flaherty said, per The Star-Ledger. "At least from my standpoint, there's no thought at another position."
Flaherty said Pugh has been able to maintain his quickness at the point of attack, even though he's bulked up to 310 pounds.
"I think he's getting better at right tackle, his pass protection is better," Flaherty said. "Is he there yet? No. He gets tricked by some of these veteran defensive ends but once he gets better with his techniques they're not going to be able to trick him anymore. I don't flinch at all on him playing another position."
Coach Tom Coughlin said nothing is set in stone. "We’ll try different combinations," he said. "Nothing wrong with that, I hope."
