Sure, A.Q. Shipley had some "rough" plays out there, today, and was called for face-masking; but, for someone like Shipley to come-in and play out-of-position, I think Shipley did a fine job filling-in for Osemele. It seemed like the offense line was more stable, once A.Q. was in there.
I'm kind of curious to see how severe K.O.'s back spasms (that, apparently, appeared as soon as warm-ups began) are and if it plays a decision in John Harbaugh starting A.Q. Shipley against the Packers. I don't want to blame Kelechi Osemele fully for his less-than-stellar performance, so far (*COUGH* Let's not forget about the guy to his left. *COUGH*). However, with Monroe at left tackle and Shipley at left guard, I'm feeling better about this o-line.
As long as Gino Gradkowski continues to grow, a line consisting of Monroe, Shipley, Gradkowski, Yanda and Oher sounds promising.
