We have numerous players with groin injuries, abdominal injuries and other minor, but practice limiting injuries.

Many players, so far, have been limited to practice time while players get shuffled around to fill the voids.

Will this team be able to turn it around and become a cohesive unit before training camp ends?
I agree with what you are saying, but i think its a little early too be worried. Let's see how they look Friday night.

those are legitimate worries. nothing wrong with posting them. however i do think these pup's right now are giving other guys time with the first stringers to make our depth more solid. i havent looked, but i really dont think we are in much different shape than most teams out there right now, besides our punter of course. like someone else said lets see how they look in a couple preseason games. i think we will be fine!

Yeah, the original poster does have some legitimate concerns. I think the team will do fine though this season. :)
