Whats up with Boley? I know he had the hamstring issue, but I thought it wasn't that serious. The last I heard it was becoming bothersome. Has he been practicing? Will he play this week?

This is a great question and I would also love to have additional info about it. Boley proved to be a key component on our defense and when he went down last year, our defense tanked.

Definitely warrants answering......hamstrings are one of those "god forbid" injuries that only time can heal and can potentially keep a guy out for an entire year......<see Aaron Ross>......hopefully it will subside and he'll be 100% come the regular season.

my question is who plays the WIL position if Boley can't go for a while...

Man, we need Nicks, Boley, Williams, Beatty and Canty to be ready week 1.

On the one hand, having him sit a while and get totally healed gives us a chance to sort out the best of a large group of talented LB's in camp.

On the other hand, we haven't gotten much from the Giants on his condition and that always worries me.

my guess would be keith rivers
Rivers would be my guess too but if thats true then we will lose some speed at the WIL position and I'm not sure about Rivers coverage skills compared to Boley

i do agree with the loss of a little speed, but rivers will add some more intensity in my opinion (idk about the difference in their sizes), but rivers seems to be more physical. one of the reasons why i am not so worried about boley is that we do have rivers behind him. the only drawback would be boleys experience within the system

I could be wrong but im pretty sure that rivers is actually faster the Boley.

Also i think its alright that Boley is resting because we know what he can do already. Its good to see what the other guys can do like Rivers and Paysinger.Them 2 are getting most reps this Saturday We traded for Rivers and he was a 9th overall pick so lets see what hes worth for us and Paysinger has been really showing up but every snap counts for him out there we have so many Will Backers
