Wondering if we'll ever get to see any of the potential Ramses Barden could bring to that offense. He's not expected back this week, as he's suffering from lower back pain that involves some structural issues, according to Tom Coughlin.
It's a shame. This is a kid who really needed a chance in the offense, and now he can't even run. And no one seems to have a timetable on his return. Time is wasting, and if the 6-foot-6 Barden doesn't get over his problems, he could well be headed for the waived/injured list or the IR, especially in light of the emergence of Victor Cruz as a legitimate roster candidate.
The same can be said of safety Michael Johnson, who is suffering from similar issues. Of course, we all know that last year, Johnson's major talent was watching receivers run between him and C.C. Brown.
Coughlin said both men are making progress, but it's a slow go. And right now, time is of the essence for everybody.
