Looney, who was recently sidelined with a toe injury, has spent the majority of the preseason working as Travis Frederick's backup at center. However, he got some work at left guard Wednesday, so he may see more opportunities to provide depth on the line as the season gets underway.
Looney has likely been practicing at center because the coaches are comfortable with how he performs there. Being back on the field practicing now means he will be healthy for Week 1, granted there are no further ailments.
Looney (back) is limited at the opening of training camp, Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram reports.
Looney is nursing a sore back. The fact that he wasn't placed on the physically unable to perform list means he should be back to full speed soon.
