True. In years past this would have been ignored.

Today, its a freaking toes over the ledge panic party when someone gets dinged, and we desperately wonder why we didn't bring in a pro-bowler sitting on the couch just in case he misses a game or two.

Good news.. Hell, great news. Hawthorne should be back week one as well. They needed the reps to get used to the new scheme but they are vets and should be ready week 1.

Maybe Lofton is so excited to be with a team who has a real chance of winning another super bowl that he just doesn't want to miss a minute of playing time.

As bad as we desperately need him, if he is not 100% i would rather him sit. Playing on an ankle too early could cause it to linger the whole season. I would rather sit him and have him 100% for the Packers. At least hold him out until the Panthers game.
