I get it that it is preseason and all but I believe in the theory of playing all out, all the time. It is when you let up that injuries often occur.
On a side not, Epps didn't look to bad out there; with a few reps he could be decent. I hope Cumberland can get some reps next week. This guy is like the Chad Schilens of Tight ends.
He injured it before the slide. He slid after he hurt it so he wouldn't get crushed.
People hate on Keller, but he's our best weapon on offense and I know that is not saying much.
