NFL Preseason Week 4: Latest Fantasy Football Injury Analysis

Let's start today's Injury Report with 10 questions. I'm asking you and the NFL for some kind of answer here, so drop it in the comments and I'll highlight the best of them later this week. 

If it's so smart to have Robert Griffin sit out the preseason, why don't more teams do this?

Would less people watch preseason football if we altered things to make it a controlled scrimmage?

Would adding players to the roster, or even to the practice squad, help with the injury issues around the league?

Are the four designations (probable, questionable, doubtful and out) enough information in the Twitter age?

If it was a good idea for Fox to have a former NFL referee in the booth to explain rules and replays, wouldn't getting a former NFL athletic trainer in the booth to explain injuries be even more useful?

What was the last real technological innovation in football?

What would happen if a team provided—not required, but just provided—knee braces for every player? What would the reaction be by fans and around the league?

If the NFL put sensors on every player that could tell you speed and position (as several teams already have), why not add in accelerometer data to tell us how big each collision is?

Is it possible to calculate that from just speed and position? It turns into a bit of a word problem: "Player A is running east at 32 mph. Player B is running south at 30 mph. What happens when they collide?"

People often joke about wrapping players in bubble wrap, but is that such a bad idea? Why is there not some level of high protection that is replaceable and essentially disposable?
