Teams hide injuries as much as they can. I'm not saying he's injured but no one here has the slightest idea if he is or isn't. And no it's not normal for a player to sit around with bags of ice on their ankles and knees. The only reason for them to not play Parnell is he is either worse than Free (a frightening vision) or he's injured. It's normal this time of year for many to be dinged up some more than others. I certainly hope Free is injured enough to account for most of his poor play and also that if so its something that isn't chronic.
Wasn't Free struggling last year as well?
