I've got mixed feelings.
If he doesn't play... say he comes back week 4. Well that's only 2 more games than if he were put on the PUP list. If he's not back 'til week 5.... that's only 1 more game. If he's not back 'til week 6, did we gain anything?
So it becomes a question of properly managing the roster spots we've got.
I wanted him off the PUP list, just like I wanted Posey off the PUP list. Can't practice with the team if you're on the PUP list & more than anything, Ed & Posey need to work with the team if they are healthy. Hate to think it's taking Reed this long to get comfortable with our secondary.
