    Injured Players flew to Indy with the Team? Will they attend SB ?

    Wondering if TT, Goff, Witherspoon, Austin, and all the injured players who were out for the yr flew up with the team, going later this week, or what?

    I am sure they will be in street clothes on the sideline with their team.

    Well, Shockey, as I recall, had to attend on his own dime.....thus making it clear to everyone he was a goner. So I guess the question is, did the Giants you mentioned get brought down with the Giants? If the answer is yes, and I would expect it would be, then I would also expect that they would be on the sidelines.

    I'd have to guess they'll be there. I think the SB is the only game where inactive guys, practice squad guys, IR guys, etc. are allowed to wear a jersey on the sideline.

    Not so sure. Phil Simms regretted going to SB XV. He was excluded from almost all team activities. The team tries to remain as isolated as possible. No family, no friends, no entourage, no "posse" and no hangers-on. Only essential personnel and that doesn't include players on IR. The last thing the team wants is injured players hobbling around bumming everybody out.
