He will suit up Sunday.  He is listed as day to day so his feet have not fallen off as of yet.  Watching YOUR team struggle with so many injuries in the secondary and standing idly by is not something a real man would do.  And yes it is still YOUR team Jairus, you know the team that is paying you 7 million to be ok enough to practice but not play in the game.  I get that he didn't get his big contract that he wanted but 7 million for a few months work aint to shabby so stop being a spiteful Bitch.  Hope him and his scumbag agent are amused with the current state of our secondary.  As a loyal fan for 20 years I will never look at him the same again if he fails to play this week and leaves us hanging yet again.  Good enough to practice but I guess on Sundays those feet just start acting up again.  Be a teammate!

Grow up. It's not a team. It is a business. A corporate entity. The players are employees. No one on the "team", not the coaches, not the players and not the front office have publicly expressed one iota of concern about Byrd, as you seem to believe, faking an injury because of his unhappiness with his contract.

tagged player's worst nightmare:

That fear was confirmed, according to ESPNs Adam Schefter, who said the injury will cost Melton the rest of the season.

It could also cost him much more than that.

The 26-year-old was playing this season under the $8.45 million franchise tag. After not getting a long-term deal from the Bears this offseason, his hope was to parlay another strong year into a payday next offseason.

Now, it's hard to imagine anybody giving anything close to the kind of guaranteed money he deserves to a guy coming off a season-ending injury.

It's the reason players hate the franchise tag so much, essentially the worst-case scenario for those employees.

Ask Eugene Parker....he is the one in control. Byrd has not got the stones to make a decision alone.

Not sure I buy the argument that nobody will pay Melton after he's had surgery. ACL repair is fairly common these days and there are a great many players who have gone on to have great careers after rehabbing this type of injury.

But I get the point - and there are certainly plenty of opportunities for career-ending or performance-diminishing injuries in an NFL season.

HIS team? His TEAM?

This hasn't been Byrd's team in a while now.  He's an unhappy mercenary, nothing more.

with few exceptions they are all just mercenaries.  of course.

some are happy some unhappy.  but they will all switch sides without even thinking about it, for a dollar more, and i would guess that far less than half of them really care THAT much if they win or lose, except the play-offs offer more opportunities to pick up a check.

certainly a lot of fans care a whole lot more.

One of the most important services agents apparently provide is deflecting blame away from the players.  Byrd hired him, Byrd keeps him, Byrd agrees with his decisions, yet we all yell about Parker.

you can't really expect players with minimal educations (lets face it when you are on the team the classes are a lot easier) and very young people also, to be strong and savvy enough to make these multi-million dollar decisions.  they pay an agent to advise them, and the smart ones then do what the agent says.

say what you want about Parker, he does not leave many pennies on the table, ever, for his clients.

Yup because every fan has PhDs.

This is getting hilarious.  Byrd would be a moron to play through an injury on a one year deal.  And like it or not, he's probably going to get big money.  But as someone else mentioned, not one teammate or coach had said one thing about Byrd's professionalism.

That depends on how you look at it. I just read that the Bills and Carrington had been negotiating an extension, but couldn't come to an agreement. This injury will most likely impact Carrington's ability to receive that long term offer again; from us or any other  team. Injury is the risk these players and agents take. In this case, Parker left the money on the table in favor of playing the odds that Carrington wouldn't get hurt and compromise his future. Not saying it was wrong just that he said no to the offer and left it on the table.

It's the old byrd in the hand argument.

I can't say I would utilize my leverage the same way were I Parker.

carrington had a decent year last year, but he was not starting I don't think.  I guess the extension, reflecting that reality,  was no great shakes.  Still, he could have put some incentive clauses in there I am sure.  yep, Eugene did Carrington no favors.

I agree with the OP. I have heard that he will only play if he is 100%. How many players are at 100% during the season? BS. Get out there and play. Quit being a kitty kat and man up. Your team needs you.

Once again, it's not his team. It's just a group of fellow employees who aren't as seemingly disgruntled.

I've said this a few times but it needs to be repeated.

I still remember this post that came out a few years ago saying that McGee was faking an injury and it turned he had nerve damage in his knee and could barely walk. Or even more recently with Kolb's concussion, accusing him of lacking toughness.

I will never accuse a player of faking an injury. Never. Its wrong to question how these guys bodies react to relentless punishment that few people on this board can even fathom. I have no idea how Byrd is feeling. I do know that not a single even rumor has come out OBD saying Byrd has been a bad teammate, an angry employee ect. Every single one of those rumors has come from this site

"FAKING" is the wrong word. even though I have been dogging Tyrd, I would not say he is "faking" his injury. I believe he is injured. the same injury he played through most of last year when it was in his best interest to play hurt. now this season, after 8 months of rest, it is no longer in his best interest to play hurt. some may call that smart, while others would have a less flattering name. when was the last time you heard an injured player say he was going to wait until he was 100% before playing.
