We seem pretty deep at LB (knock on wood) hopefully we can sub him out enough to keep him healthy.

Sharief and I might be related...


So, is Kwon the Wolverine? Remember when an Achilles injury took more than one full season to return to the game?

Great point!

I've argued instead of having big-cap-hit defensive linemen, maybe one, NFL teams should use the NHL approach and rotate entire fronts to keep them fresh...

Perhaps with the LBers they can be rotated to always have an elite, rested speed providing blanket coverage all four quarters and the players aren't strained...

I'm a little worried that he may have rushed back too soon. It's been hard for me to trust the Saints medical staff over the years. Hopefully, they will work him back into the rotation slowly.

It wasn't the Saints medical staff. Alexander was not a Saint player during his recovery. It was Dr. Sharif Tabbah, the same person that works with Kamara in the offseason. There's no reason to waste a roster spot by not using every player to their fullest, especially against a team like Green Bay. If he wasn't fully ready they should have placed him on the three week IR. The fact that they didn't means he should be a full go.
