    Per rotoworld, he will return after the bye. Were going into NY with thomas, marshall, and gaffney all ready to go and hopefully a 100% healthy bush.

    Thomas is obviously a big part of what we wanna do on offense. He's a ZBS style of runner and he can pound it in there. It's important we get him healthy.

    if we don't run block any better than we did against st. louis he'll be hitting a brick wall. fortunately, the jets suck at stopping the run.

    Cleared for his *** to contact the bench! We win without him.

    If the Gary guy on the PS, whom CK loves by the way, shows anything from a skill and size standpoint? Daniel maybe packing his bag real soon! His only value at this point is his size, which is kinda funny considering he runs much smaller than his size would indicate.

    I wish they'd clear a roster spot and dump his sorry ***. Just saying. :)

    "It's big as hell," said Thomas
    The team's medical staff apparently changed Thomas' helmet hoping that a bigger one that featured more padding would alleviate some of the head trauma this physical back has been experienced.

    I don't think Gaffney will need a LARGE helmet

    So let me get this straight. A larger helmet with more padding is the solution to two concussions? The NFL is begging for head trauma lawsuits. No way this kid is ready to play so soon. The NFL approves players for games like the FDA approves drugs.

    Also, I don't think he sucks, he runs hard IMO. He's just such an easy target to hit out there that he'll be injured again in no time.

    Common sense would seem just the opposite larger helmet is more mass, more force in the trauma and creates more whiplash but our medical staff is always spot on.

    That's JONAS GRAY, who is 5'9"/223, w/good speed and even better quickness. He ran w/good power at ND, as well as being able to go o/s of Tackle. He has soft hands, and plays smart. He's NOT prone to fumbling, "dancing", and a lot of other thins we might not like. He tore his ACL last season, and last I heard, MIAMI picked him up as an UDFA, and let him know that they were willing to "wait on him". If he make it back all the way, he's a VERY good prospect, and one that MIAMI would never have had a real shot at otherwise. I/m/o, he's everything that we want THOMAS to become.

    He really could be a very good HB.

    So at what point do we blame the players for not saying NO.... I doubt they are being forced to play and I believe they want to play because the NFL is very competitive and they do not want to lose their job or a starting spot by missing 1 or more games...

    I really hope so..Personally I've seen enough for DT to know he doesn't have what we need, the perfect "power" complement to R.Bush and L.Miller! The guy gets ran over during safety blitz and get's tackle for lost one on one in the hole. Nonsense....Waste!

    A ZBS style runner has vision and Thomas doesn't have vision

    I pray that Thomas hasn't been mentally affected and be able to hold onto the ball

    Yea your right we might be better letting DT play to his strength on this team, blocking, catching the ball out of the backfield and move away from the power back theme. The guy is a converted college QB regardless of his size he is playing the RB with more of that mind set than a natural RB. His confidence has to be shaky from what I have seen in the past some players are never the same after concussions.
