Re: Stinchcomb, the Bushrod re-signing gives them a little bit of flexibility, with swing tackle Zach Strief (who I assume will re-up) and 2010 2nd rounder Charles Brown on hand. Hopefully one of those guys is fit to step in at RT if Stinch isn't 100%.

I'm not sure why anyone should care about T.O.'s ACL. He's an old, unhealthy FA, and I believe FO's metrics indicated he had a terrible impact on CIN's passing game last year.

Re: TO, this article was written for ESPN. I'm sure there's some contractual clause requiring a certain amount of talk about big-name stars.

Gross. What about Charles Woodson's broken collarbone? I guess since it wasn't mentioned, he's healed up and ready to go.

FYI...Stayed away from bone breaks. They heal, and there's generally no long term effects or increased probability of reinjury. Tears are a different story, so all of the players on the list fit into that group.

How does Palamalu not make this list?

Because nobody can spell his name.
