Wonder if he'll be headed back to the practice squad? Has he been active for too many games or can he go back to the practice squad now?

Reed never left the active roster. If Grimes was released, there should be a spot open on the roster.

Hmm, must not have been doing very well on ST's.

I'd like to see Eddie Pleasant on ST's. I bet that dude would play ST's with a wreckless abandonment.

It'll be tough to recover from losing our 4th string RB.

Chris Taylor?

Wasn't he the last 4th string message board darling.

Pretty sure that didn't turn out to be a big deal either.

I would guess that Grimes has been released in anticipation that this late in the season he will pass waivers and be able to be replaced on our PS (he is under the 9 game max, especially when taking in count that he was "inactive" during some of his stay here). I expect to see one of our present PS players to be brought up to take the open spot by the time he has passed waivers.

maybe leave it open till Monday, if we win Keenum so we have a backup for TJ's start vs Indy.

Don't want to imagine a world where we don't win this game.

I don't know if it's Keenum but it makes sense to me to have a third QB having some time to get into the groove before the play-offs.

Let's say we bring back one of the old guards or Beck.
It's good for them to be on the practice field and maybe play some in the final game to knock the rust off.

But who knows, if they like Keenum enough as the third QB, they can activate him so that he can have some playing time in the final game just the same.

Jeremiah Johnson was the also a free agent darling in 2009, getting even more love at the time than Arian Foster,

Yeah, I even added him on facebook. He was supposed to be the hard-hitting downfield runner to complement Slaton.

Well other than that half-back pass for an interception in the "red zone" thingy... I think, but not sure.

*EDIT*

Nevermind... That was probably Chris Brown, not to be confused with kicker Kris Brown or girl beater Chris Brown w/ Rhianna (Hey GIRL!!!).
