MORRIS Could Belichick give up on this oft-injured player in favor of BJGE? If not, we either start the season with an injured player or keep one more RB than we need at the cost of the fourth OT. Reiss is suggesting that Belichick will keep five running backs for six weeks while LeVoir is on the PUP list and deal with the roster spot in the 6th-8th week of the season. CRABLE How serious is this last injury? Is Crable worth keeping a roster spot or should he be put on IR? Reiss is suggesting that Crable is the odd man out. Perhaps he knows more than we do about the estent of Crable's most recent injury or the extent of Belichick's patience with Crable for 2009. LENON Lenon is fine linebacker addition to the roster, and he is also a fine special teamer. He even could start at ILB if necessary. IMHO, if he is healthy, he is a lock, expecially given Crable's issues. HOWEVER, he is not healthy yet. Might Belichick put him on the 53 anyway since Alexander is the alternative as an ILB backup in case of a mid-season injury to Bruschi? After all, the #3 ILB is usually on the active squad. BOTTOM LINE Reiss addresses all the injury situations with replacement players that are available now. By excluding Lenon, Crable and O'Callaghan from the roster, he is able to make room for three special teamers: Alexander, Slater, and BJGE. Reiss has more information on the injuries than I do. He also is likely to better know Belichick's attitude toward carrying a gunner position. I have O'Callaghan, Crable and Alexander on my roster projections as of now, but Reiss may have the better analysis. He should; he has more of the information needed to make these decisions.
