    Is it Gilbert that is our angel of death? If he ever makes his way back to the field, then we will definitely have an OLman go down, as well as a RB or two.

    I hope I'm not an RB that goes down! Stay away from me, Marcus!

    I agree, if he's healthy it's a no brainer.

    whatever DeCastro's rehab process is, we need to keep him as far away from Gilbert as possible.

    It is great news that he can practice....but lets face it...He is a rookie and has very little game experience....and as I recall he struggled in the preseason.

    Practice is one thing but changing the dynamics of the line now doesnt make sense. Over all the line is playing pretty well.

    Foster did look good filling in at RT earlier in the year, after all.
    A healthy DeCastro is still better than a Mike Adams with a few games experience.

    I'm just happy to see that the injury isn't as serious as we originally might have thought.

    He struggled a little but came on and their was an article right before his injury with his teammates saying things clicked on for him and the game was already slowing down for him.

    I disagree Shawn, there is healthy, and there is game ready.....I'll give you an example.
