Just read that Spoon is ruled out for the cowboys game. Don't have time to link it cause I'm on my phone but regardless it sucks. Hope Dent is ready

Rise up time.

Yup, this sucks. Hopefully Dent, Peterson, and Nicholas can step up and fill that void somewhat. I wonder if this will push us into playing less two LB formations. It will be interesting to see if Nolan tries to compensate via scheme or not.

I believe we will see, even more of Abe standing, and Biermann at LB.

I guess I should have posted it when I saw it way early this afternoon. This is a big hit. The guy is pretty awesome.

This sucks. But I believe you are right. I believe we'll see more of the 3 DT look with Abraham and Biermann in rover roles. It sucks because we're playing Romo who is one of the most mobile QBs in the NFL.

Last game Bierman dropped pretty damn often. I don't mind it because it worked well against the Eagles, but would much rather have Weatherspoon on the field every snap.

I hope he can come back before the Playoffs

I picked up Bierman this week in my regular IDP fantasy league. I was hoping he might move to some LB coverage schemes since DL tackles count more than LB and DB tackles.

Dent will get the start and the reps.
Biermann has become so useful this year playing in different spots and formations. I think he is becoming the wild card in our defense. He has blitzed and dropped back into coverage, even playing a free safety type role at times. The Cowboys will try and challenge Dent and find Biermann in their face the whole game.
