The depth up front took another hit today with Damik Scafe getting released with an injury. Same thing happened with Scafe last season. He has had injury issues during his time in the league and has not been able to see much of the field. It happened again for the guy.

We've signed DT Doug Worthington. DE Damik Scafe will be waived injured today.

To replace Scafe, the team signed Doug Worthington. Another fresh body to throw at our problem, but it doesn’t mean that he is a fit for the final 53. The team needs some talent in the trenches and they are stuck with a bunch of random players in those positions. We already had talked about the issues up front earlier today, but with Scafe gone now, this team has a bigger hurt at the position. There is no depth on the d-line and the depth chart is full of players that has never played a snap in the NFL. This team needs to find some help in a hurry at the position.
