Saw where HBC said today that Shaw is recovering and could play on Saturday. I was hoping we would rest him for the three game road stretch, but if he is truly 100 percent, do y'all think he should start?
We should rest him for the 3 game road stretch?! Arky and Mizzou are much better than last year, we could lose those games if we don't improve fast. We can avoid playing him against Kentucky but if he's good to play, why not play him?
If hes truly 100 percent let him start and handle the first half then give the ball to Thompson.
Gets Shaw another W to get to 21 and prevents any rust from forming because if Shaw sits against Kentucky then he'd be going into Arkansas not having played a meaningful amount of snaps in almost a month.
Just let him run out of the I formation though so he doesn't expose himself to further injury on a zone-read play
Rest him for the game, but get him on the practice field. He can keep from rusting that way and not put his shoulder at risk unnecessarily. If he pushes himself to come back for UK and either reinjures his shoulder or makes the current injury worse in a game that he is not really needed, then it would hurt more in the long run than if he sits out one game. IMHO...
