I want to know if he's having problem with the same hip he had surgery on. I'd feel better if it wasn't.

The same injury from last year flared up on day one of camp which is a sure sign the injury never fully healed as stated on some tweets I seen from Triplette and others. Doesn't look good for this year folks, just be glad we have decent depth

Rather a healthy PJ than an injured Westbank on the field. Dont rush it and come back ready to play

"Actually, I look at it as a blessing," the New Orleans Saints cornerback told NOLA.com Friday evening in a phone interview. "It could've been much worse if I would've went out there the next day. So, I'm glad that I went out there, tested it out, figured out what I needed to be fixed, took the right protocol and went and got hooked up with the right people to help me fix it."

I'd prefer he takes the time he needs since he's clearly had a set back. No rush. I'd rather him take until week 2,3,4,5,678 if he needs it. He hasn't been able to shake injuries for almost 3 years he's just kept rushing back and reinjuring himself

Wanting to talk waiting week 5 -8 to come back, but if history is an indicator for anything... Is that we either start hot or at above .500 or we sink.

Couldn't agree more. If he only plays in six game, but he's healthy, that will be great. Some on the job training can only be a good thing for our young cb's

So if you're to read between the lines, Keenan is saying he has a Grade 3 Flexor strain which is typically 8 weeks before you want to test it and he probably wants to accelerate that schedule which would be a mistake (it's like a hamstring pull in that if you test it too soon you just re-injure it and set yourself back 8 weeks again). So he could see the field in week 4 or 5, maybe be ready to start week 6. If he went to IR (formerly known as designated to return) I believe the soonest he could be back was week 8.

With the young talent at CB, and if my conjecture is correct, I think IR is probably the best move for the team.
