    We should be able to get by without them both just fine.

    Better safe than sorry this early in the season.

    I would imagine so, especially since White won't be playing.

    Hightower is a huge loss. I think he would have been great for stopping the run.

    Did Edelman break his ******* hand with his slap fight in the Ravens game or what?

    Perhaps, but I'm still not convinced that their offense is any better than Buffalo's.

    We'll know in 24 hours. :cool:

    Looks like Hightower's chances of ROTY aren't going to happen....it will be up to Jones to garnish that honor.

    Annoyed about Hightower being out. It looks like we'll have to play Nink at OLB and swing Cunningham some more reps at DE.

    Either that or play a bit more 3-4 have Wilfork Love and Brace upfront and Jones/Nink at OLB with Mayo/Spikes at ILB.

    I think we should be ok

    He has a hurt hand. That's all BB wants the world to know. Could be broken. Could be torn ligaments. Could be a severe hangnail. Maybe he flipped Baltimore the bird and it froze. One thing for sure: WE WILL NEVER KNOW!

    Agree 100%. Especially with Hightowers hamstring injury. Those are easy to reinjure if you rush back too early.

    Let him sit another week and he should be back in full form.

    Heh. Garnish: to add a useless decoration, like a JEST win to close out a 3-13 season. :p

    I agree with you, but I think you mean "garner."
