Brian Dawkins Return This Season Still Up in the Air

Some quotes from Dawkins radio show on Monday night.

"The game I play is violent, and I play it at a certain level.  I don’t want to go in and do something to my neck in
that region that is going to have this thing reoccur again, and I’m
right back on the shelf again. That makes no sense to me.

"And then you have to think about further damage down the road as
far as my life. There are a lot of things I have to take into
consideration, so that’s why we’re being so cautious. We’ve been
cautious the whole time, and that’s not going to stop now."

While those quotes all seem fairly bleak, Dawkins did work out with the scout team last Thursday.  His future seems fairly uncertain.  The fact of the matter is that the Eagles defense hasn’t been the biggest problem in past few weeks.  It would be great to point to BDawk’s absence as one of the reasons for the Eagles poor play, but the D has faired pretty well without him.
