revis went down in miami, week 3 after pittsburgh. holmes went down against the 49ers. keller, i will give you, absent for the first 5 games and some might argue is still missing.
injuries are not to be used for an excuse. if this team had not traded away most of their mid level draft picks over the last 7 years, they would have some depth to overcome these injuries.
if you think things are bad now, wait about 14 days...
