    Info from Tomlin's PC

    Per Tomlin-

    Ta' amu (sp) is suspended without pay for 2 weeks...Tomlin says team will NOT tolerate this type of behavior. Will NOT be allowed around team for 2 weeks and will re evaluate situation later....

    Out of Cincy Game-

    Troy

    Questionable-

    Pouncey
    Mendy
    Redman

    If Pouncey can't go, that leaves us with only 6 healthy OL (Starks, Colon, Legursky, Foster, and Adams starting, with Beachum as the only backup), so we'd need to make a roster move this week to activate another OL from the P.S. (such as Ryan Lee or John Malecki) or sign a veteran OL (such as Trai Essex, who was cut by the Colts 3 weeks ago).


    1.15 WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M
    2.46 TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
    3.97c ILB Shayne Skov, Stanford
    4.118 CB Philip Gaines, Rice
    5.157 OT James Hurst, North Carolina
    5.173c RB Jerrick McKinnon, Georgia Southern
    6.192 CB Walt Aikens, Liberty
    6.215c DE Deandre Coleman, California
    7.230 NT Zack Kerr, Delaware

    He was asked about suiting up 8 OL for this week, and he sort of said that they were going to do that. With the suspension of Ta' amu, they have an extra roster spot on the 53 man... They must be working out some FA's- he said there were some there today trying out... Stay tuned....

    Woodley is playing...

    Here we go again with Woodley...Isn't he suffering from a hamstring issue? Hope this isn't like last season, where he went through a major part of the schedule either ineffective or unable to play because he kept coming in before his hammy was fully healed.

    IMO it will be an annual problem. He is a DE playing OLB and I don't think his powerful body is made for chasing RBs, WRs and TEs while in coverage.

    This is pure speculation. If this opinion is corroborated by anybody with a medical background, I'd love to see it.

    Interesting. My father and I were actually talking about this after his injury. It seems like he's 10-15 lbs heavy as an OLB and 15-20 lbs to light for a 3-4 DE. He must be around 270. Last year, he looked about the size of Heyward.

    Or maybe it's his training. Maybe he should focus more on flexibility and resistance training than weights.

    I'd think his problem with hamstring issues is more likely to be tied to his powerful body not being kept in top condition. Admittedly, that, too, involves some speculation...but it appears to me that Big LaMarr may have allowed himself to get a little TOO big.
