Danny O'Neil tweeted that Aaron Curry avoided a more serious injury, but suffered a painful one: a right hip pointer. Nate Burleson will have further tests on his injured ankle, but, no offense Nate, I rather hope he is held out for the rest of the season. Burleson is an ex-Hawk waiting out his time. Starting him ahead of younger, under-contract talent can no longer be justified. Deon Butler is not the right substitute for Burleson, but Ben Obomanu or, hell, even Courtney Taylor could be. Neither have the pure talent of Burleson, but this season is decidedly no longer about winning games. It is about the future, and delaying the future to prolong this arduous present is as foolish as it is painful.
