It's not a good sign that Lattimore was placed on the NFI list and Ward and Tank were not. This is a not-so-subtle warning that he isn't right yet. With Hyde above him on the depth chart, he may never get his shot
Yeah I hope it really is just preserving the option of the NFI list. But then I wonder why they didn't do that for Jimmie Ward (and possibly Tank C.) as well.
His injury was very serious. I think it's more of a precaution - than anything else. I wish I knew the PUP rules better, but I'm sure somebody here can figure out the benefits of putting Lattimore on the PUP when he looked really good in OTA's.
Niner FO is greedy ...... we ain't letting anyone (FO deems worthy) go. We're deep and FO wants to keep it that way.... other teams can have our table scraps (camp fodder), but stay away from our good players!!
