When you look at the roster on Cats site,it's difficult to say who will be in or out; they still have 52 players,although we officially know that Barker and Bekasiak were transferred to the injury list. 50 players remain,meaning that 4 more have to be excluded from this list. the 50 include 28 I and 22 N
Regarding DL, there are 5 I on this list; definitely no more than 4 will be dressed for the game; Kori could be out.
With regards to receivers, there are 5 I and 3 N ,including Bauman who is "apparently" hurt; not much depth on the N side.
Obie has said all along that they plan to start 5 I DB and 4 I Wr/SB; if so, the 17 starting players could be: 1 QB, 2 OL,4WR/SB,3 DL,2LB and 5 DB; if such, no room for I RB to start, meaning that Caully or Smith will not play. The remainder of active/game day Imports should/will be: 2 QB, I RB,1 WR, I DL, I K and 1 DB. No import reserve at LB.
Ticats fan don't put your goal too high, because you will be disappointed. I don't see how they could be better than 4th.
