I'd hope that we try and upgrade everyone outside of Smith on the OL, and realize that we can't do that in one off season.
And yet he same thing goes for Church, yet everyone is far more hopeful of him coming off a horrible injury for a DB and being just fine. You can actually replace every time you say 'Costa' with 'Church', and that paragraph would go exactly the same for both.
I don't think anyone knows what Costa's health will be, but we can't just assume he won't be there cause of it. We have to assume he will be there to compete just like Lee, Carter, and the rest of our MASH unit this season.
