Is the sky falling? NO, but here are some things to consider with our WR depth chart:
Nicks - AWESOME player, but like one poster phrased it "he is made of tissue paper"
Cruz - can't wait for the second act to see how he follows up last years perfromance
RR - Rookie
JJ - Second year player, not much playing time last year, was kinda scary on KR, ok on PR
Barden - Drafted same year as Nicks, and what does he have to show for 4 years, 15rec, 174yds, NO TDs
Hixon - love him....but 2 ACL injuries in 2 years!?
My sincere hope is that Nicks injury is not serious and long lasting, that he heals quickly and fully. I also have theory that if Ballard can return, MAYBE one of our TEs can be used more as a WR, perhaps Bennett or Robinson?
