Fourth and 2 from the NE 39, punt
Third and 4 at the NE 48, run up the middle then punt
Always conservative, and it gets old
He broke his arm on August 14th, so we just ticked over 7 weeks on his recovery. He's also coming off of a horrific ankle injury, which I'm sure doesn't feel great still. Give the kid a break (no pun intended), these things take time. Better to make sure he's back for the stretch run then to have him re-aggravate it and lose him for the season.
If I had to bet on it, I'd guess they'll try to get through the San Diego game as well, so that he can also have the bye before rejoining the starting line-up.
