Hypothetical pre-practice conversation:

KH and MB: “Okay Bert, it has been a while since you did anything overly violent. We need you to take out Patty’s knees for us during drills this morning. Make it look accidental. We’ve gotta have space for Tatar and Nyquist.”

TB: *salivating and grunting*

KH and MB: “Good, that’s the spirit. Tomorrow, we’ll work on ‘fixing’ the contracts we handed to Sammy and Toots.”

I hate to see this happen to Patrick Eaves.  He missed last season with a concussion…  Now this…  The guy is a true “gamer”, and gives 1000%.
Good luck to him.
