Found September 04, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
PLAYERS: Jairus Byrd
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
Buffalo Bills safety, Jairus Byrd, has plantar fasciitis and it may cause him to miss some regular season games, reports Dan Hanzus of Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the sole of the foot.  The connective tissue that runs underneath the foot traveling to the toes becomes inflamed and is actually extremely painful.  The intense pain is generally felt underneath the heel of the foot.  Byrd dealt with this issue last season and received injections to get his tail feathers on the field. Who would have thought that one Byrd in Buffalo could cause so much drama?  I admit I knocked Byrd a little bit for squawking at the Bills and making the team wait until the last possible moment for him to sign his $6.9 million franchise tender. However, I just had my “moment of clarity.”  Byrd played through this injury last season and even took injections to stay on the field for the losing Bills.  Byrd now figures the Bills should award such football chivalry and give him the coin he thinks he deserves.  Instead, the Bills franchised him and they still have the power to do it again next season. Byrd chirped like a parakeet when he got to Buffalo because he feels slighted by the team.  What motivation does Byrd have to give the Bills his remaining intestine until he is beyond 100% Byrd standard ready?  The answer is obvious, none.  A Byrd sans nest egg is a Byrd who stays on his perch.     You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69 Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot.
