What his "hand issue" is and what "protection" he will have to wear, will determine how well if at all he can be expected to catch. As for pass blocking, since a good pass blocker must be able to hold back or push the defender, again it will be dependent on the same set of circumstances, but possibly to a lesser extent .
With that said, as OD continued to look somewhat gimpy, I'm just as concerned about his repeatedly drained knee coming into this game.
One-legged, one handed......all he needs to complete the picture is a patch over one of his eyes...........and then, he'd still be better than many TEs out there.
