I'm surprised there isn't discussion of this already. He was excused from Thursday's practice for "personal reasons" (after missing part of Wednesday's practice with "sore feet"). We've seen his lackadaisical attitude on Hard Knocks but unless a parent died or something, there is no excuse for a rookie to miss the tuneup for his first preseason game. I just hope his problems aren't of the Quincy Carter variety. I thought it was a mistake in April when we passed up several potential #2 receivers for a #3 tight end (and then traded our reliable #2 TE for nothing). But this is bigger than a draft mistake. I don't want his attitude affecting the rest of the team. Maybe we should use him as this year's Curvin Richards.
