    He has a broken fibula :facepalm:, per Ed Bouchette. That's usually a six week injury, he should be back in time for the playoffs. It's time to activate Cam Sutton.

    it is huge in a bad way. We need him for the Patriots game in week 15, and it looks like he will miss it. That's why we got him.

    Broken fibula and they didn't immoblize his lower leg or put a walking cast on it just a sleeve? That would be the most curious medical blunder since the Dolphins game and telling Ben he couldn't possibly hurt his knee worse if he played on it.

    I had one before, all I had was some crappy sleeve it heals on its own.

    Yeah, that game is already over. #2 seed is best they can do.

    Cue Cameron Sutton then.


    At the same time, time for Artie Burns to grow up and stop pretending he lives in "La-La Land" too.


    No excuses. We have to win out.

    I think mine's was just a break, the doctor wanted me to get a cast and use crutches I told him hell no. I had to work I only missed one day too.

    Everyone is calling for Sutton due to the injury, but I thought they were thinking about him going to Safety?

    what....a....pisser.....he was really a solidifying force in the secondary. They'll take a step back for sure. Really, really wanted this guy to be a major contributor this year and he was well on his way. Very understated addition imo. But I'm a huge Sutton fan and as many have stated it probably would have taken an injury to get Sutton to the 53. But it couldn't have been a worse route.

    If you activate Sutton who are you cutting from the active roster?

    So you are going to IR Haden and lose him for the playoffs?

    Sutton is still on IR...to bring him back to the 53 you will have to cut someone..or move someone else to IR

    I'd be very surprised if they put Haden on IR. It seems like he at least has a shot to return by the playoffs.

    They've been hanging on to Sensabaugh for a reason. He wasn't horrible today. He wasn't good, either, but he wasn't as bad as Burns and Hilton.

    They would cut Hunter before Rogers. Neither is a factor on special teams and Rogers is the one who has been active lately.

    Yup. They are going to be without Haden and Mitchell against the Titans.
