WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. — Answering reader questions after the first week of training camp:

What’s your honest opinion on the Byrd situation? — @andrewcook318

That it’s not time to worry about it. It’s way too soon. Look at rosters around the league and you’ll see there are key players fighting injuries in every city.

Look, I get it, it looks bad because the way last season went, but it’s way too soon to start panicking or worrying that he’s going to bust. I’ll start to grow concerned if he isn’t on the field in time for the second preseason game. Until then, I’m not really going to worry about it.
