A couple of injury questions

It's always been hard to get straight answers regarding injuries, but here is what I think I know and what I need to find out.

Greer may be back vs. the Bucs ; anybody heard different

Sedrick Ellis; damn he makes a difference vs. the Run when will he be back

R. Bush; His leg injury didn't look that bad he was stretching out after the play and frankly it would've really helped had he stayed in and offered some semblance of a running game. When will he be back?

Jamal Brown; after Bushrod's performance on Saturday the LT spot feels like a vulnerability. What is his status?

R. Gay; It sure would be nice to have a completely in tact secondary...

If we get these back for the playoffs, I see no reason we won't return to form. These are some big holes the coaches have had to scheme around and the fact that we're 13-1 is a real testament to what they've been doing.

If you guys have any updates I'd appreciate it, especially on Brown who I have found nothing on.

Brown is on IR and according to Payton last night on the coaches show on wwl, he said everyone else would be back for the first playoff game.

Re: A couple of injury questions

Official injury reports come out on Thursday. (i think).

Greer's recovery from operation would put him on track for playoffs.
Don't expect Brown back this year.
Ellis may have been precautionary. Should see him next week...
Gay seems to have a lingering groin problem that keeps him from 100% almost every week.

Reggie is starting to make Cam Cleeland look like Cal Ripken.

Personally - I think we can rest the defense this week. After last week, the onus is on the offense to really dominate TB.

It's not like in the good ol' days. Doctors have to clear them to play. Also, the game is faster and much more violent than it was before. You will never see another Jack Youngblood playing with a broken leg. I'm sure there are players out there who will play with broken bones, but at one point their ability to play is so diminished that the hurt player becomes a liability on the field.

On the other hand, you see players coming back from injuries much faster than before.
