Injury scratches for the first preseason contest against San Diego (kickoff in 30 mins):
I'm not worried about this at all. Thanks to the lockout, the players are playing far colder and rustier than they normally would be. I'd expect teams to treat even the slightest injury like an unexploded bomb and just rest the player, especially this early in the preseason.
Our starting WR corps (in order of likelihood to make the 53) is Golden Tate, Paul Baldwin, Isaiah Stanback, and Ricardo Lockette. Interesting. With that kind of development opportunity, these guys will have much less of an excuse for poor performance. Tate, in my opinion, needs to be out there for an entire half at least. This many WR "injuries" is good for both the starters and the underdogs.
The absence of Bryant should give us a thorough look at Pierre Allen. Also a good thing. Kid is tantalizing.
