The importance of hips to a safety........for running, cutting and especially torquing/swivelling those hips that you always hear about in evaluating safeties........are like the importance of eyes to a tight rope walker. In each case, lacking that facility puts them "dead in the water."
Good point for sure. I see no reason to be optimistic that he gets off the regular season PUP list. I think he is on it and then works his way back in around mid-season.
While I highly appreciate the Veteran leadership and presence he brings to the team, I'm just not sure how good he will be on the field even at 100% health. The last couple of years he really was starting to show some wear on the tread.
I'm more pessimistic on that safety spot now than I was coming into camp because DJ isn't ready, Reed is not coming around - and that leaves us with Keo. Dear God.
