Because the one thing you cant find out until he hits the field is "IS he game ready?". . . Is he ready to go back across the middle or is he gonna be looking for the hit before the catch and just endanger himself through his own fear. He needs to have more than a healthy body, his head has to be right too. He's got to be ready to BOOYA, take that hit! and hold the ball like a fearless caged animal.
Last I heard, he wasnt right in the head yet.
Would like to hear more about the not right in the head thing. Was your source a player, a coach, the media, or call-in sports radio?
