Re: The Running Game

I really dont care if it TH, Helu or Torain. If someone is hurt, then someone steps up and takes the ball. If someone is hot, stick with the hot hand. All 3 guys seem to be really good fits with this style of offense, so lets just keep running the ball.

Not so sure man. I like TH, but his yards per carry does suck rocks. He is usually good for one TD, but I am not sure. I guess we will see in week 6 who the starter is.

Re: The Running Game

I guess his shoulder brace or whatever he was wearing was just for show.

Look, TH is clearly not playing well and Torain came in and played great. I won't be surprised if Torain is the starter against Philly, but TH is dinged up. He's had a lot of work so far.

I think I probably should've made it more clear, that was sarcasm. Hightower, for whatever reason, whether it be injuries, hasn't had very many big moments so far this season, except for his effective first half against AZ. But I do think he's injured, because I saw him wearing what looked like a shoulder harness on the field today and I don't think players normally wear those when they're not injured.

Either way idc if he's injured or not, because it's obvious we have a very nice triplet scenario at the moment. If he can't pound the rock, we have 2 other guys that can.

Good point. Shanny should have just said TH was having a tough day at the office and put Ryan in for a different look or give TH a break. Nobody in here has mentioned anything about him getting really bange up in the g ame, unless it is heldover from the Boys debacle.

Why didn't you mention that before? I didn't see the game as the Lions were on. That is the first time anyone has mentioned that he was wearing a shoulder brace. So he did get banged up. He will probably be benched for week 6.

I just saw people say he was banged up, no mention of a brace.

Re: The Running Game

Is the team withholding details about injuries? Isn't that against the rules? For the last couple of weeks, it's been, "Hightower was tired", now this? An undisclosed injury. Makes sense.

Re: The Running Game

If teams truly reported all injuries, the lists would probably include just about every guy on the team. Who isn't dinged at this point?
