Listed as questionable but if he's up to it, he could start. Essex has gotten better each week so if Marvel can't go we should still be ok.

i hope he does play, you're right about essex getting better every week, but i rather have the real starters in getting some reps and playing in meaningful games so they can start clicking

I would rather see him rest until fully recovered, he is a probowl lineman, he wont forget what he needs to do, and this way Essex get more of that needed experience. Maybe start spelling Essex with him next weekend toward the end of the game to get up to gamespeed again for our first playoff game against the Bungles.

I agree with Rotor, IF we can afford to sit him one more week, then we should. He came bak early from one ankle injury and tweaked the other. Him practicing is good news though.
Time for a playoff drive, and we are getting healthy!

I think we should sit him too... last time we brought him back to early and he was hurt worse. Plus, I am starting to beleive that Essex can get the job done... like some others said, he's been improving each week. After watching the last two games I'm actually more disappointed in Starks' play. :twocents:

Good point. Probably would be wise to rest him for another week. Essex isn't doing too bad.

im telling you, if our o-line gets healthy and our O starts to peak, we will be DANGEROUS in the playoffs. gotta get their first

we'll get there, and y'all make good points, no point in rushing him back, let essex play these meaningful games. the experince will be great for our depth

Yep, let him sit one more week... Essex needs all the experience he can get in case something happens in the playoffs...

I think we can handle the clowns without Marvel. No sense in rushing him back too soon. Essex seems to be holding down the fort for now.

i think we can handle the browns with maddox playing LT. i just want everyone to be heathy for the playoffs and i want them to start clicking, so hopefully marvel can get in there a little bit and get a feel of things and see if he needs to rest more

marvel is upgraded to probable, said he had a good week of practice so unless something happens he'll probably get the nod tomorrow.
