    Aw, damn.......sometimes those seemingly insignificant injuries really can screw up a season.

    Hope he does well and gets back SOON!!

    Finger injury this early might not hurt him too much, still has a month before the season starts and its not like he needs a ton of reps or playing time

    I'll be honest... yes it limits his ability to pull down INT's, but he doesn't need a fully functioning hand to play CB. As long as he doesn't have any pain and he's able to play with a semi-soft "club" cast (similar to the ones put on DL, LB's, and the double-clubs MM sported as a rookie), he's still capable of knocking down passes and tackling guys.

    He'll miss reps in practice... honestly it probably will be to Wright's benefit and possibly Gilchrist's as well. Have to remember that Gilchrist is kind of super-sub for us with Weddle being re-signed, because Gregory is a capable nickel and dime DB too.

    Early pre-season surgery = not good. We'll be keeping our eyes on it...

    at least it's just the hand, I mean, he can still run, practice, etc with a cast, just not play in preseason, gives the young guys more playing time

    If it were any of us the doctor wouldn't do surgery, this will aid in his healing and back to playing sooner. Thank God it wasn't his knee!!!!!

    Shouldn't be a huge deal for Cason to come back. He really doesn't need reps in the pre-season
