Well, no I'm not at the practices, it's just an assumption. Normally, when you have players on a team, you prepare with them, even if they don't play. I'd have to at least assume that Nolan was able to work out more, but I do know Sharpton has been working out with the team.

If you read the rest of my comment, you'll know I'm not really upset with it. Just weird that they did it so close to gameday, as opposed to using the last week on Sharpton's PUP. But, you said it best. Wade's call. In Wade we trust.

In order to make room for Sharpton coming off the PUP list, The Texans have released Troy Nolan, again.

Watch for the Lions to sign him, and cue the GP conspiracy theories.
How was that a conspiracy theory?

I predicted it would happen. It happened.

It's how the league works: Teams sign waived players to help prepare against that player's former team.

Duh.

Duh.
The Lions released CB Alphonso Smith a couple of days ago. Gardner walks out. Smith walks in.......gets his ears cleaned out. After the Lions game, Smith walks out. Gardner drags his limp ass back in. Conspiracy covered up. Game in the win column. Game over.

Default Re: Sharpton Activated; Troy Nolan Released

How about another scenario.

During a "safe" game against the Jags, Sharpton is activated........then released so he does not have to be paid as an IR or released with an injury settlement..........then we see Nolan's name back on the roster.

Nolan would have been on the inactive list tomorrow, don't see how waiting a week makes much of a difference.

It's a joke man.

I just remember how you were when it first happened, and make a light poke at it.

No need to get defensive about it....

Odds are Sharpton will be hurt again before he ever records a tackle. That guy is the most injury prone player on the team.

Yeah, I googled his name and read about the stroke awhile ago but didn't want to mention it.

Seems like he's fine now, isn't he?
