seeing more of Moss. Hopefully this accelerates his development.

Where's OO? (just kidding)
Harris seems like WLB type

Thought Moss looked good vs. DEN.

How soon will Vernon be back?

So we basically had a one year reprieve on the injury front.

14 players now on IR.

thought they might wait for Okwara, since he was only supposed to be out a few weeks. But it's hardly surprising that they didn't. Moss is pretty much guaranteed to get significant playing time now, especially if Vernon is still out this week.
The amount of serious/season-ending injuries  
Dave in Hoboken : 10/17/2017 7:36 pm : link
not only on this team, but football in general these days, is absolutely staggering. It really has taken the fun in football almost completely away. I don't ever remember it being this bad.
Okwara injury is not good new - however - he is replaceable  
DavidinBMNY : 10/17/2017 9:36 pm : link
Wynn is ahead of Okwara from what I see on the field. Maybe there is a chance Vernon returns soon. The team is very light at DE right now. Bromley might have to take snaps on the outside or Kennard will come down to the line with another LB on the team.
seemed like Okwara started out as an unknown but by this

Spring had drank his own koolaide.

Whereas Wynn has been lunchpail since the get go and fights towards the football.


O.O. I never saw a player in him since his pre draft and said so at the time.
good and bad on Moss  
idiotsavant : 10/18/2017 10:13 am : link
Good - looked like he had a hand in the vicinity of the pass on the Jenkins INT. Great.

Bad - Seemed really winded at times.

Unfortunate

Okwara was not having a good season, so far. The good news is it gets Moss some vital experience with live bullets flying and sets the stage for a battle with Okwara next year.
