    No source cited.

    Apparently all three are headed for IR once they clear waivers... I suspect Grigsby and McClover will get an injury settlement and be released outright at some point... but Nolan will be stashed on IR for the year.

    I did a quick entry about it here, also.

    I guess they'll also have to make a cut to make room for Molden returning from the PUP, no?

    Nope (thankfully) - the active (pre-season) PUP guys still count against the 80 man roster-limit, so Molden's already accounted for, and won't require a roster cut.

    Ah, yes - I knew there was some kind of rule about that. Thanks.

    McClover is the DL right?

    Yes, he was a draft pick of the Panthers, but could never stay healthy.

    I never really thought Grigsby would make the final roster, but it sucks it had to end this way. He seems like great guy.

    Pity about McClover. I had high hopes for him.

    Hey you never know. Maybe a roster spot opens up later and this dude can get signed back on. Hopefully that never happens because it means someonelse got hurt but if someonelse gets waived to make room for him that could be a good thing too.

    First Harrison, now Nolan. Seems like our late round safeties are jinxed. I was more excited to see what Nolan could do than I ever was with Harrison or Barber.

    Other than the fact he sucks, what's wrong with Harrison? :thinking:

    Tough luck for Nolan. Seminole is right about looking for him to be a player rather than Harrison or Barber. Or Harrison.

    Does anybody know if Jeremiah Johnson successfully passed through waivers and onto our IR list?

    Well I do agree that he sucks, but what I was referring to was their rookie years. I remember hearing good things about Harrison and then he got injured early in his rookie year. I was looking forward to Nolan but he too is injured early in the season.

    Ah, gotcha

    Unlike a few, I like Barber. I think he's got the size of a prototypical safety.

    Yes - I emailed Nick Scurfield at HT.com this same question a few days ago and he says he is on IR, it just hasn't been updated to say so yet.

    Yes, Johnson cleared waivers and is now on IR.

    I think Barber has potential. He didn't play all that well last year, but from what I hear he is working very hard right now, so he should only improve. He has a big shot to grab a starting role due to the weakness of the group. Kind of like how CC Brown became a starter.

    I suspect that's what will happen to Nolan too. Grigsby can't go on the PS. But I think he'll be back. I think the guy they signed is a placeholder while Grigsby is on the mend.
    from HT.com....
    Seems like I recall they pulled Boomer in to play special teams and FB. I think he'll be back.

    When do they HAVE to declare these things? Only T.J. and Molden are still listed on IR according to today's HT.com roster.
    Probably not until the cut date in Sept, huh?
