How many of those examples tried to play with reportedly a detached tendon? I have a bad feeling that LT is going to be Merriman this year. Try to play through it, find out that he can't, and then go on the shelf for a year when he could have had the surgery right after the season. Yeah, I know, he saw a bunch of doctors, but isn't that what Merriman did? Obviously, I'd rather see LT re-sign, and be completely wrong about the injury. But those are the things a prudent team is paying attention to.
