    Any news when he will be able to return to the playing field?

    He should have been able to return by now; after sitting out the first part of the season.

    Looking for a spark at that 3rd WR position.

    Good question? Not sure why he isn’t getting a look. Maybe they are happy with Switzer in that role

    He's still working his way back. Fichtner had brought up his name in a article I read somewhere so he is in their thought process. I guess it all hinges on his ability to get up to speed and his effectiveness. Stay tuned...

    This article was written on 11/28. Says they have up to 21 days and if not then not at all.

    I’m going to opine that perhaps they want him to practice a bit before making their decision. The risk in not signing him is they lose depth for the posts season. With no diva RB, I can’t imagine it’s a financial decision as they have the ability to make a move that can help. The other negative would be having to cut someone from the 53 to make room. I think they added a RB this week after moving Hunter to the injured list.
