    IDK, shoulder injuries take a long time to properly heal as they can easily be re injured.

    Exactly, look how long that one took. Trouble is the tendons that hold the shoulder together can get stretched out like the elastic band on an old pair of underwear. My cousin had his shoulder messed up so bad from hockey that he would sometimes wake up in the morning and find it had dislocated in his sleep.

    I had a torn labrum (Locker injury). The shoulder socket is very shallow and the labrum tissue is the only thing holding it together. Online reports are calling Mariani's injury a shoulder bruise. Hopefully it's a quick heal.

    I wouldn't doubt it one bit. Fishface is always taking the Titans scraps.

    Well, we gotta keep a return specialist when we have two guys who returned kickoffs and punts for TDs in the past. That's a gamechanger. Neither DRey or Mariani offer anything outside of returns.

    We either keep 4 RBs, or 7 WRs. Or no return specialist. Pick one.

    I'd keep 4 RB's before I kept 7 WR's. Reynaud can actually run a little bit. He offers something our other backup rb's don't have too. Speed.
