Trigger Happy

What is up with football players and guns?

Just recently I read that Terry Johnson a defensive tackle from the Chicago Bears was arrested for and unregistered gun. In a relating story dealing with you Minnesota Vikings, quarterback Daunte Culpepper was discovered with a gun in his car that he rented. Apparently the gun was actually registered to team mate and Vikings running back Michael Bennett. No one was arrested but just an odd story I think.

Birk Out 3-4 Months

It just seems that every time I write about center Matt Birk the situation gets worse. Just recently I found out the Birk will miss the season opener after he had hip surgery several days ago. It was to repair his torn labrum, which will take 3-4 months to heal. The anchor of the line seems to be sinking in his injury right now. But coaches are optimistic of his return after week 1. In the mean time Cory Withrow will replace Birk at center.
