He is only partially right; Butler may make it back after the bye week.

Re: Ouch....

From all I have read, I am not getting my hopes up on Butler's return. Then what if Vilma cannot return...the $11.6 goes even higher.

Re: Ouch....

With the amount of players getting ACL injuries they need to do something about both looking into the sudden increase of the injury,i have my thoughts why.Also if teams should receive cap relief when players miss the season with injuries.

Re: Ouch....

my theory on the ACL injuries is what I have targeted Jim and John Harbaugh of doing the last 2-3 years as a coach.

That is teaching players techniques that intentionally injure players, its not necessarily limited to only targeting knees which lead to it that is being taught by these coaches though. But we saw a glimpse of it in the 49ers/Vikings game.

If you have looked over the past years with Harbaughs coaching (thus far in the NFL), theirs this tendency that players are taking out key players of the opposing side quite often.

This is why I think the ACL injury has been so persistent lately, its not just harbaughs coaching it either, but they are prime examples in my book.
