erformc Posted October 29, 2020 Share Posted October 29, 2020 From the reports after practice today it seems that it's a good bet that Reagor, JP, Edwards and Ford are likely to be able to play this week. There are currently 51 roster spots after Djax and Ridgeway were IRd, so that means at least 2 moves will have to be made. However, it's likely more due to the fact that Malik Jackson might not be able to play and if that's the case, they'll have to sign TY McGill to the 53 since they already promoted him 2 x from the PS. I'm going to assume that happens, so there are 3 roster moves needed What does everyone think those moves would be? Here's my thoughts as well (in order of likelihood) as some other considerations that come into play in making the decisions. 1. Craig James to IR - He's just coming back from a thigh injury, now he hurts his hammy. 2. Cut Tyrone Croom. This leaves them with only 2 TEs (one of whom only played 5 snaps last week), but with Goedert likely back after the bye, they could either take the chance and roll with those 2 or promote Caleb Wilson from the PS for Dallas. 3. Trade Will Parks for a 2021 conditional 7th round pick - With Wallace being healthy and Ford coming back, he's expendable. We don't need 6 safeties on the 53 man. 4. Jack Driscoll to IR - This one is very risky because of how fragile Lane has been all year. However, now that JP is back he could (shudder) play LT if Lane can't go and Mailata would be the RT. If either one went down they'd put Pryor or Toth in as a stopgap. 5. Alshon to IR - Let's get 2 things out of the way. 1. Keeping him on the 53 instead of PUP was roster malpractice. But that's a sunk cost at this point. 2. No one is trading for him. No one. Even if he was 100% healthy. Since it's a new injury they could put him there. However, with DJax hurt the WR corps is very young, and with the likelihood of making the playoffs they may not want to shut him down for another 3 weeks then try a second restart later. 6. Cut Corey Clement - Yes, it's a risk with Sanders hurt and likely not playing against DAL, but he's not done a damned thing all year and is shell of the 2017 version. Yes, he's a core-4 STer, but he can be replaced there. Let Huntley be the 3rd RB or promote Killins or Holyfield for DAL. Only danger is that among the healthy RBs, he's the best pass blocker. Yes, that's like saying he's the skinniest kid at fat camp, but it is what it is. 7. Cut Sua Opeta - He did poorly in his first ever start, but the Eagles liked him enough to promote him to the 53 man last year when Miami tried to poach him off the PS. Given what Stoutland has done with Mailata, I'd keep the kid around for another year and let him get more coaching. 8. Genard Avery to IR - He got hurt in today's practice so maybe they could stash him there. But for one game, he's shown nothing. Only risk is if Curry can't go. Even if that's happens, they could promote either Miller or Ostman. 9. Cut Quez Watkins - This would be a huge risk and with our luck the Cowboys would take him and he'd go for 8-170 against us. 10. Nathan Gerry to IR - We could only wish. 11. Cut Strap - They've done it before, but with NRC playing like crap and James and Maddox banged up could they afford to do it.
