Gettis and Hogan

Any word on when these guys are going to come back? I'd like to see them in some preseason action,granted their only hope at this point is against reserves.

Hogan has shown absolutely nothing since being drafted. Gettis at least had the good rookie year, but before it's all said and done both of these guys could be fighting for a roster spot.


Here's our current corners without Hogan
Gamble
Norman
Munnerlyn
Butler
Josh Thomas
Stanford

Last year when we cut down to 53 and before picking up Butler on waivers we only carried 3 corners on the active roster(Gamble,Munnerlyn,and Stanford)


Receivers without Gettis
Smith
Lafell
Murphy
Pilares
Adams
Davis
Edwards
Tutu

Last year we went into the season with with 6 receives on the active roster.

heres a link to last years final 53

amazing the difference a year makes,if we don't cut a single carryover from last years roster there will still be at least 13 new members of our final 53 and the only 1 possible downgrade would be Shockey missing.

I'm thinking the partial season IR rule might apply to one of these two at some point if the NFLPA approves of the new provision....

Im hoping they play sunday, but it aint lookin good! I do think they both make the team on potential alone, they are both top three talent at their positions if they can just get healthy... Id rather have a hurt gettis on the bench then a healthy edwards or tutu sitting there.

I've gone on record stating that I think Hogan will not be on the opening day roster.

If Gettis isn't healed by now....he may not be able to overcome the injury

Only thing I can find on Gettis is an early August mention of a Hammy problem....the knee is not specifically cited...but there's a lot of room for speculation there...he's mentioned as running full speed at some point, but like many have pointed out, running full speed and making sharp cuts are way different when it comes to a repaired knee.

Edwards and tutu combined for exactly 1 more catch and 4 more yards then gettis last year. Im keeping him over those two this year. If he cant get on the field this year next year we can move on, but not yet.

Good post & questions. I don't think they will give up on Hogan yet. I think if either, they 'could' on Gettis...IF...he is not going to be able to get on the field before October.

I think they end up carrying 5-6 CBs & 6 WRs. The 6 CBs would be if they have doubts about Hogan, otherwise 5, IMO.

I really hope we get a chance to see them in the next 2 games. Hogan has had a longtime to heal now & Gettis has had a year as well. I can see the training staff holding him out to the 1 year point as a WR, but with Hogan...there must be inflammation that will not resolve for him to be held out this long.
