you see that little word "chance"?
OK, just wanted to make sure.
the kid was also having back spasms, as well as having the seizure. this all happened in the summer, and he got zero reps at the position because of it. now, if it was mid october before he was cleared, why would you put him in a game, over guys who had already had their reps and playing time?
As far as Langley, he started, and got his arse beat like a rented mule in the first 2 or 3 games. Shaq Wiggins got a look after that, the kid balled out, and he got the position. This isn't stinger or pee wee football, where everyone gets to play. you don't perform, and you stand on the sidelines.
End of story.
