    Due back around week 4 is my understanding ..... If PBuch continues to produce on returns I could invision him going to the pup list which would keep him out until the 6th week I believe .

    What week is the bye? That could help decide if he's on the pup or not.

    Hey when is Jerome Mathis expected back anyway? I thought this guy was projected to be out for 8 weeks and that was when in the off season at the start of our free agency draft/picks.

    Any info?

    He was placed on PUP. Here is the official rule for the PUP:

    P.U.P. rules

    Players placed on Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform are allowed to begin practicing with the team after the conclusion of the sixth regular-season weekend and continuing after the conclusion of the ninth regular-season weekend. The practice period is not to exceed 21 days. Any time during that 21-day period, teams are allowed to restore the player to the Reserve/PUP list or to the active roster.

    Does anyone have any updated info on my dawg Jerome? I know he's on the PUP and cant come back until after Week 6, but I'm really ready for him to come back and have us starting from the 45 every drive ...

    Kubes said Wong would prob be back a couple of weeks after the Cowboy game and Jerome would come sometime after that more than likely. At least that is what I think I heard.

    I too look for a return by JM. He offers Billy Whiteshoes excitement the others have not instilled in me.

    I agree it'd be nice to have him back, but at this point, he's not going to make a huge difference.

    Mathis (2005): Returns 54 for 1542, 28.6 avg
    Sheppherd (2006): Returns 8 for 225, 28.1 avg

    So unless Sheppherd has a huge dropoff or we are 1/2 a yard short of the goaline, Sheppherd has been a great substitute so far.

    PS: Edell is probably better in the passing game than Mathis was

    I think Shepherd will be the guy from here on out. I remember over the offseason Kubiak saying something to the extent that he wants a return man that can also be an effective receiver. Shepherd's done pretty well at both.

    Hate to say it, but I think that Mathis will probably get traded this offseason.

    Not unless Shep takes atleast 1 to the house, because we know Mathis can
