Let the injuries commence. Not a good day in the NFC East, where Pro Football Talk is reporting that Pinkston is done for the year with a torn Achilles tendon. The linked article from the Eagles' website just says he got hurt today along with -- surprise! -- Correll Buckhalter. Can't spell Buckhalter without "ACL." Lest Philly's rivals get excited, rookie Dallas defensive end Marcus Spears has also suffered a knee injury today and Plaxico Burress has a strained hip flexor. Maybe I should see if Will can start his column a week early...

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
