    My man Wilson is having a lousy contract year.

    Re: Neal, Wilson, Alexander OUT [mergedx2]

    I wonder if Neal had some "minor" surgery over the bye?

    You've heard the saying that the only minor surgery is when it's the other guy's.

    Look at the positives. At least Neal won't injure a Patriot Sunday.

    Re: Neal, Wilson, Alexander OUT [mergedx2]

    It's not really a big deal to me, we've played a bunch of games without him over the past few years and Hochstein has done fine. Neal's OK but he's eminently replaceable.

    Sounds like it. He had been out then he played a couple of games, maybe gutting it out until the bye, then got it touched up and isn't quite ready yet.

    Re: Neal, Wilson, Alexander OUT [mergedx2]

    Get used to it. I think you are going to see a steady progression of "dinged-up" players get games off. Not all at once (except maybe the Giants game) but I doubt this is the last "When the hell did he get hurt?" situation you will see this year.

    Allows players to get rid of nagging minor injuries, gets backups some reps, win-win situation all the way around.

    Re: Neal, Wilson, Alexander OUT [mergedx2]

    Well-argued.

    Anyhow, Hochstein is fine as a sub. Maybe he can only play at a high level when he's relatively rested and undinged up, but anyhow he's done fine for us in such situations before.

    Actually, didn't he play well for most of a full season when Koppen was hurt?

    Re: Neal, Wilson, Alexander OUT [mergedx2]

    In 2005, he started after Koppen was hurt in the Miami game. We had already lost Light (Pittsburgh game)...he is a capable backup, and Buffalo should be a good game for him to gain experience.

    I think we are being over cautious with Neal. Good idea overall.

    Re: stephen neal out today

    I'd bet that its not a serious injury, they are just giving him extra time to heal so that he's 100% after november. It also gives Hoch some playing time as well. The guy deserves it. It's great having depth!

    Re: stephen neal out today

    He has a chronic shoulder injury that has sidelined him for I think a half dozen games this year (and bunch last year). Neal is good, but next year I would not be surprised to find Yates or someone else in that spot.
