They probably wanted to keep Winston, but the numbers didn't quite work out; hence the late scratch. It's just my guess, but since they've been covering their bases pretty timely (as much as time allows) the last few years, I really think that was the case. Then Butler became another scratch; it was a good thing that they can find a quick patch in Harris. It shows me that they've been doing their homework.
Demeco is another cap casualty, IMHO.
In Wade's system, if he needs to, the D only needs one monster at ILB.
Wade probably thought we can get by with James (not me) and Dobbins while waiting for Sharpton to return. It was just too bad that we lost Cushing.
