Center Jeff Byers suffered an MCL sprain in the third quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers game. He refused to come out of the game. Rivera had take the day off to rest the knee, but praised the backup for his toughness.

I recall there being a piece about Kalil and Byers not too long ago. I like seeing this kind of toughness on the team, especially after shoulders have been destroyed from reaching too high for the Doritos (Oh Otah... what will you hurt next?)

Although I love toughness most people aren't so fortunate. Some rupture their achilles...

yeah good toughness.. but i don't think it's a big deal. i expect him to be an inactive on sunday. 2 of the 3 between byers, pollack and garry williams will be inactive. personally id like to see pollack active

Wasn't sure why we kept him on the roster, but now I'm on board with it. Always nice to have that kind of toughness on the team.

Tribal attitude is developed over time. Year two seems to be heading in the right direction.

That kind of energy feeds a locker room, which is why I think Rivera kept him around. Not that he's going to start a revolution or anything, but toughness like that is being emphasized by the coach. I'll make sure to make a thread about how we should trade Hurney Badger for Dan "Tha Spider" Snyder to keep it with the usual flow.

Wasn't Byers "Captain Penalty" in one of the games? Maybe Miami?

Toughness? You can put some guys from this board out there and they can give you toughness. It doesn't make them suck any less, and I was extremely unimpressed with Byers.

That's why he's a back up D:
