Regardless, without Kuper our team is worse. With him, our team is better. We need our best offensive lineman on the field.
You are right about the post game swelling.. I was in Denver for the game and he came off of the field as bad as I have seen him. He will be fine but made a good call by utilizing the ten days to get ready for the Ravens. It should be a good time in New Orleans in February
