    Marcus Cannon

    I think this guy would play right gaurd for the Pats?? If he is healthy enough by week 6 or whatever do you think he would move Connoly out of the starting line up?

    I don't, play him when he's ready, sitting him if he's ready will do him no good.  If it's a year then fine, if it's next week fine.  It's not a torn ACL, it was cancer he's not going to reaggravate his cancer by playing football. 

    I would imagine the hurdle is regaining strength and getting back into football after chemo.  Leaving him out if he's ready will not help him.

    I appreciate the sentiment Killa, but I agree with Shenanigan. That is not the nature of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, or any other cancer.  He had it, it got treated, and if it appears as if it is gone, that's it.  You never know if it will come back, but whether he sits on the bench or plays will have no bearing on that.

    If his cancer is in remission it's simply a matter of letting him get back into shape following therapy.  Sitting on the bench will not send his cancer further into remission, or decrease the likelihood of it returning.  Think about that.  Have you ever seen anyone prescribed a football bench for cancer treatment/prevention? I believe it was last reported that it was in total remission.

    I'll wager that we'll see him this year.  If he's healthy, I'm sure that is what he'll want himself.

    if he doesn't play a single down then why hasn't bb IRed him? he is probably waiting to see his health, and will pup him for the 1st 6 weeks.

    It may take a while to get him into football shape . . . but once he's in shape, I see no problem with playing him if he's better than Connolly.  Remember, though, he's just a rookie who missed all of camp, so I'm not sure we can assume he'll be better than Connolly right off the bat . . .

    You all do realize when you get chemo your bones are brittle for a while, no way should this kid play ball this year. Let his bones regain their strength and he has a chance to play with less % of breaking his bones and being out for longer.

    I stick by my agreement with killa in the first place.  Of course it's Canon's and BB's decision whether or not he plays.  Doesn't change my point of view on what I'd like to see for the kid.

       If he souldnt play this year, he would already be on IR. I am sure they wouldnt send him onto the field if his bones were brittle.

    Re: Marcus Cannon

    How many treatments has he had, four? Everybody is different some people recover quicker than others from all sorts of injuries/ilness'. Guys young so thats a big plus, he's back to his pre-treatment weight, and he's been working out....with weights.  
     
    I doubt too much risk will be taken in this situation, but if he gets a dr' release, and he feels he can play after week six play him. Theres a big need right now, but It could end up being a numbers game and they go IR to open up a spot. BB will figure something out.

    Re: Marcus Cannon

    Cannon is ready to go now, except he's a rookie.  BB is thankful that he drafted an automatic PUP, so now Cannon needs to go on PUP and learn the playbook.

    Because of the rookie factor, I think Cannon won't be "healthy" and practicing until week 9.  BB probably has other PUPs that he needs earlier, in week 6.  For example, Kevin Faulk.
