Hardy is hurt and UDFA David Nelson is back. He's once again running in the first 4-WR sets. Nothing special, but he seems to be our top option for a big receiver. Easley is in for surgery and Felton Huggins is waived/injured, so we'll see a lot of him on Friday with only 7 healthy receivers, including Evans who will probably only play a series.
I want to see Roosevelt put up some decent numbers through a lot of playing time and hopefully getting to play with our best QB, Levi Brown, against scrubs in the 4th quarter. But I doubt our offense will even function.
Must be Denver again
Demaryius Thomas has scar tissue in fractured foot
Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that rookie wide receiver Demaryius Thomas looked great in both Friday's practice and Saturday's scrimmage until he suffered a setback to the fractured left foot which kept him out of commission for most of the offseason.
Unfortunately, the early word is Thomas tore up some scar tissue from the break. The scar tissue problem off the fractured foot happened to tight end Tony Scheffler a couple years back and he was placed in a boot for a few days.
Thomas seems to be the real deal, maybe a future Pro Bowler. Expectations for this year, however, must be tempered due to the foot injury.
If anything that might have been the straw that broke the camel's back
Probably. I can't imagine any football player, at any level, who's never been yelled at by a coach. Probably something more going on, but I think it's a little silly if he did indeed decide to retire after a scolding.
Gerard Warren at DE for New England is not a good fit at all either. The guy has no place in a 3-4. They need Belichick magic for their DLine to be any good this year without Seymour and Warren at ends and only sub-par stopgap guys on the roster to fill in.
