Not sure how many players sit out on average every year but damn. I hope they can start practicing soon.

I think they know what to do. Would rather they get fullt healthy the way players are going down as of late.

Yeah this doesnt concern me much.. its still a bit early for players coming off, offseason surgery.. now if this starts happening in august, then we may need to worry alittle.

Not worried,I am sure Cowher would rather have them sit than have them work and injure themselves.

Plus,it's not like these guys don't know what to do.

He's been impressive in the little he's played so far.. his hands are some of the best for TE that anyone has seen in a long long time.

I agree with everyone...no need to make a minor injury worse...it's only May and I have faith in all those guys that they will be ready to go when the season starts!!!

I love how the press asked Cowher if we were going to make a long snapper out of Miller since we was just practicing with it this weekend.
Yeah, we spent our first round pick to replace Schneck who was barely getting paid.
I swear they run out of questions sometimes but don't know when to shut up.
