There is a joke someone is going to make about Weeden turning 50 next week or something, but beyond that his reasoning for taking it easy makes sense.
“If you’re ankle’s hurt, yeah, I’m fine throw some tape on it. But you have a headache? Yes? All right, you want to be smart,” Weeden said. “I’m 31 years old and I don’t want to be 50 and not be able to know my kids’ names. To me that’s a lot more important than trying to play it out for one more series in a preseason game. It’s not worth it. Super Bowl? Little different deal.
“But I’m good. I’m making good progress.”
I don’t think Weeden has to worry about playing in a Super Bowl.
