As it has been documented, Stephen Hill and Santonio Holmes, as well as other wide receivers on the team, have had to scale back their reps this week with nagging injuries. As such, the potential of this offense really has been held back a bit.
“We gotta get them on the field,” he said. “I mean, on paper it looks great, we just have to push each other to get healthy, stay healthy and take care of our bodies. We really need those guys out on the field.”
It certainly hurts to have all of these injuries, but then again, it is early, as Sanchez noted:
“On one hand, sure it might be,” he said. “On the other hand, it’s one of those things where we’re not playing a game next week. Those guys have plenty of time to recover, hopefully find out how they were injured or whatever it was and improve on that.
Mark is happy with the pace that the offense is moving along at, learning the new system. This is encouraging. The team is starting from square one with Tony Sparano, and from viewing the offense, they are getting the hang of it. Yes, it’s early. You can see the makings of a physical, yet disciplined offense that will be able to get the ball down the field.
Hopefully this will continue.
