    incidently, so is troy
    And two of the three you mention have been plagued by injuries for the past three seasons, e.g. Sanders and Troy

    I think that is a legitimate concern with Thomas
    Troy played in every game the prior season and last season's injury was freaky with someone falling on his knee.

    I wouldn't call that plagued. No one who's being rational about his injury situation would use the word plagued.

    Troy's game totals for the past four seasons:

    2009: 5
    2008: 16
    2007: 11
    2006: 13

    Someone who doesn't acknowledge that he has a history of injuries and a problem staying on the field isn't being rational and isn't looking at the facts. He has missed 19 of the last 64 regular seson games or about 30%.

    When he is the one player who your entire defense depends on IMO that is a plague.

    I wouldn't call that a plague. There's a story behind the numbers.

    A story like:

    "Once upon a time we had a defense that was totally dependent on one player..."
