Next man up doesn't work when you have 4 guys out, and all that's left is a bunch of rookies and castoff's. Yeah, it's a pretty big deal.

Re: What's the word on PJ Williams

I'm very glad for P.J., that he didn't suffer a spinal injury. I don't mean to lose any perspective on that. But all that aside, if it's only a concussion, why on earth is he going on IR? They let Swann get knocked out 3 or 4 times before calling it a year for him last season.

Seems like at least waiting a couple of weeks to see how he progresses would be worth it, rather than just putting him on the shelf immediately.

Yea that's cool when the next man up is capable of fulfilling the duties of his predecessor....& that's not our case so I think that might be the big deal

Yea it is, you NEVER see the 7th CB on the field maybe outside of an injury or special teams

Re: What's the word on PJ Williams

I think they made the right choice to place the young man on IR. Boxers don't fight within a couple years after getting knocked out and with the serious problems with CTE and the continuous concussions Swann had after his misfortunes this seem like a no brainier to place him on IR. I pray that P.J. have a smooth and full recovery

Burn,
From my reading, there was speculation that PJ suffered a GRADE 3 concussion. Apparently these are super severe (loss of consciousness, amnesia, possible bleeding, nerve trauma). He was on the turf motionless for a least a minute if not longer. If he does in fact have a Grade 3 concussion & would get another one a week or two later it could be life threatening & permanent brain damage.

The young man is only 22, 23 and suffered a very serious injury that could be life altering. Right after it happened, I immediately began to pray for him because it looked bad, I mean Darryl Stingley (paralysis) bad. I just don't think the Saints medical staff & trainers are taking a chance with it.

Side note: IMO I don't think the Saints staff handled Swann's triple concussion situation well last year. Hopefully he has no long term effects.

Re: What's the word on PJ Williams

That sucks. But prayers have been answered as far as spinal damage, glad he's not paralyzed.

As for the corner situation, yeah it's bad, but after Monday, we're not far from the bye week. We'll get Rankins and Breaux back eventually...and let's not forget, we held the almighty, ALMIGHTY Giants offense to no TD's, without Breaux, and without PJ Williams. But, I guess we'll have to pitch a few shutouts in a row to convince anybody that we're worth a darn. I'm more concerned with not converting 3rd downs, and the FG unit to be honest.

I said that to say this, if we can manage until Breaux returns, I think we'll have one hell of a secondary.
