But seriously TJE isn't ready either. He was gettinf cramps and pushed back a good 2 yards.
Under no circumstance should we rush Dorsey back, and hamatring injuries can get really bad if not allowed to heal fully.
Realistically Dial probably wont play till after the bye and I would prefer we did the same with Dorsey.
Whether he's "ready" or not we at least Purcell for the depth.
But even if you don't use a NT and play nickel all game who will be on the DL?
Lemonier, Smith, McDonald, and Brooks on the line with Bowman, Willis, and Skuta at LB? I'd say maybe Dobbs at DE and Brooks at LB instead of Skuta but I think Skuta is a much better LB than Dobbs is a DE.
I think they should just bite the bullet and activate Tank and Dial. There's been hundreds of rookies start out looking great from day one. Let them do it too. I bet they would contribute more than Dobbs and TJE/Purcell.
