that'd be awesome to see him play against cincy. but i dont think we will need him and wouldnt mind seeing him sit, or play a little nickel

I agree, no need to rush back for the Bungles:flap:

I wish they just rest them until the pats game, especially bryant.

Gotta be careful with that broken arm

Gay, Madison and Bryant did a good job against rivers, they can handle Fitzpatrick

With the short week, Gay filling in decently, and Cincy being not that tough, think we will just give both these guys the additional 10 days rest and then potentially have them both back and be at full strength in the secondary starting week 13?

I know McFadden returned to pratice but not yet cleared for contact. Haven't heard much on Townsend.

btw.....it looks like 2 of Cincy's O-line could be out and with our pass rush, we may not need a secondary in this game, lol.

I think the young D-backs have shown some promise. The added experience will only make them better. Madison and Gay are 2-3 year players. Lewis and Mundy are Rookies. A pretty good base for the future.

Plus the more B-Mac sits, the easier it will be to re-sign him.

Good

Rest them till they are really healthy

And gives the team time to test gay and madison

Hey, let the starters rest this week. It's just a practice game anyway, so why not let Gay see if he can keep up what he's been doing.

That's strange. Steelers' website said that McFadden fully participated in practice today.
