Ever wonder how come none of the injured players (inactive for the game) are present on the sidelines? Ray Lewis hasnâ€™t played in weeks but is there every game (even on road games). Clay Mathewsâ€¦. â€“ same. I remember seeing Urlacher, as well as many other players present on the sidelines. For some reason, I donâ€™t recall ever seeing an injured Pat on the sidelinesâ€¦. Gronk is nowhere to be seen (unless you follow him on Facebook/Twitter), Hernandez was never on the sidelines while he was recovering, etc. Any thoughts? Is this something that BBâ€™s won't allow?
