After reading every post in both the Bodden to IR and the Secondary threads, I'm a little surprised that the above question hasn't been asked. Is it because the injury is so debilitating that even a CB, who tackles less than any member of the defense, cannot play with it and not experience ineffectiveness to the point of uselessness? Has any CB started the season with a torn rotator cuff and finished the entire season? How long is the recovery time? If it's no longer than 6-9 weeks, then why not save a roster spot for Bodden and have him avail. for the post-Thanksgiving stretch run? Why not wait another few days, maybe get a second opinion, before deciding to IR him? Bill's obviously giving OxyKaczur every chance to play this year, so why not Bodden? Inquiring minds want to know.
