And just like that, out for the year. I love me some Niles Paul. Backup TE and special teams superstar who was starting tonight because Jordan Reed refuses to stay healthy. A gust of wind and he’s out 2 weeks with a groin. So Niles Paul who had 39 catches for over 500 yards last season was ready to step in and have a big year andddddd he’s dead. Fucking sucks. And who is to blame? Chris Cooley.
Over the last couple weeks there have been tons of not-no-subtle whispers from Cooley that he wants to play again. Then there was the rumor that it was a rumor being spread to try and get him a raise at his radio station. And then who just so happens to be running routes on the fucking field before the game? You guessed it, Chris Cooley.
Did Chris Cooley break Niles Paul’s leg? Not saying he did, but I can’t say that he didn’t. Savvy move from Cooley I suppose, but I would still prefer Paul in there.
