    Did I miss something? I know he missed a practice or two with the toe thing last week, but he is close to 100% now right? Please tell me that he didn't get banged up.

    The starting DL should be Mario, Robaire, Weaver, and Babin but there will be a lot of rotating and moving around.

    I think I am as excited about this as I am about anything. In the past seasons an injury meant Junior Ioane or Jerry Deloach playing big minutes. Nothing against either of them, but it's not the same as having a Seth Payne or a N.D. Kalu coming off the bench to spell a starter.

    He had some other toe problem on a completely different toe last week. Bothered him so much that he couldn't sleep and he called the trainer in the middle of the night.
    Supposedly its ok now though. I'm sure we'll see him on Saturday, hopefully laying the wood to Larry Johnson in the backfield.

    I can't wait til Saturday. I'm making my wife move our furniture from Houston to Pascagouls this weekend so I can watch the game. I will be seriously butt-hurt if Mario doesn't play.

    Mario is listed as first string in the depth chart for this weekends game. So the answer is yes.
