    It seems funny to me we have full participation for this one when we shouldn't need half of them. :kitten:

    I'd just as soon Tate didn't play against the Jags anyway. Even if he is ready, we should save him for the Turkey Day game in Detroit.

    I don't know, I'm thinking we need to get him as much playing time as possible to hopefully up his trade value before he hurts himself again. Unless we let Grimes and Forsett get all the carries, which should be enough to beat Jacksonville.

    Right, I Thought OD was having problems with a "hip pointer", and I don't recall anything about rib issues either ?

    He better be "close" to being activated...........if not by November 28........IR.
    If he is not fully activated and still not ready to contribute, he will then count against roster and someone will need to be kicked out the door.

    Let Tate get the longest rest he can not only for the hamstring, but for the turf toe that probably led to the hamstring tear. Forsett and Foster should easily take care of the Jags.

    They asked OD about it yesterday, and he said it was his back. Not his hip. He didn't say anything about ribs.

    Dobbins hurt his shoulder on that first defensive play where he recovered the fumble. He went to the locker room and then game back and played through the pain. That damned Cutler just ran into his hurt shoulder trying to get Dobbins out of the game.

    I think Dobbins injured his wallet. [IMGwidthsize=70]http://cdn-live2.blackenterprise.net/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/2011/08/Money-Cash-Black-Enterprise-Business-Large.jpg[/IMG]

    We should come up with a mysterious injury for Foster so he can sit out a week. We shouldn't need him at all this week and he could have some extra rest for the Detroit game.

    Remember when the Jags game would be coming up...we'd be all like, "Well, we have to keep their DL and LBs out of the backfield..."

    And we'd be all like, "Man, it's going to be hard to stop MJD. He always gets the tough yards....."

    Then we're all like, "The 4th quarter. That's when Garrard runs on us and we chase him all over the field, dude takes it into the end zone on the last drive. We gotta find a way to stop him."

    Yeah, now we're like, "Let's sit our best running back. Hell, let's let all the starters sit. Save them for Detroit."

    Jags fans' world turned upside down when they face us now. :evil:

    It's not the Texans with these random "let's sit so-and-so for the Jags game" thoughts. It's we know-it-all fans.

    and if they - in some wild, alternate reality, universe - actually sat all the starters we'd all go... :panic:
    :D

    We need to rest Foster as much as we can for the playoffs.

    We need as many healthy backs as we can get.

    Hamstring injury was the result of the collision and Ed Reed falling ackwardly on the back of his legs, they were both down for a while on that.
