I keep on thinking about this over the summer since Stafford showed up looking pretty thick and his comments about doing strength work to get his shoulder stronger and better protected. Now the question comes is if he is to stay healthy this year and plays every game he needs to ie if they go 15-0 before the final game against GB and sits out that game would he lose the injury label or will it take longer than one full season of being healthy. Personally even staying healthy for this year would depend on the type of hits he is taking. If he handles the punishment that got him on the IR the past two years then I can yes he loses that label. However if doesn't take the hits then I can see the label sticking for another year.
