Just looking for some thoughts on his Injury and Mike Bell in the rotation

I dont think Thomas's injury is anything serious as they kept him out of the game as a precaution. BUT...Bell's performance showed he still has the talent he displayed years ago in Denver. If you remember correctly, Denver let Bell go because he was demanding more money. And at the time, you could plug in any RB and they would get 1,000 yards...so thats why they let him go....basically expendable. Bell said in an interview I read a few weeks ago thats he's content on just having an job right now and a chance to prove himself while he doesn't care about the money anymore. Should Thomas or Bush go down. (And lets face it, its only a matter of time with Bush) Having Mike Bell sitting there on your bench would be very nice to have. I good #3 RB or Flex guy if Thomas or Bush goes down. :wacko:

tatum Bell isn't any good after about 3 games because he can't handle the physical contact....

As a homer, I think Pierre's injury is worse than they are letting on. I do believe it is only a sprain but I do not think it is mild and he is being held out as a precationary move. word is that he will miss the rest of pre season and will not see action again until the opener. nothing to base this on except payton's past history of injuries and a gut feeling.

Clayton just said on his local radio show that this appears to be a pretty significant sprain and that even if he is able to play by week 1, he will be nowhere near 100% for at least a few weeks into the season.
