It's always a tough time in football when teams come to the unfortunate decision to cut or save a player's season.
Although I'm not an athlete, I think it's fair to say that this would be the equivalent of being demoted at the workplace, only to see all of your hard work in training camp go to waste, for a head coach to say "Sorry, we have to let you go."
So far this preseason, we've seen a number of notable cuts. Matt Leinart and TJ Houshmandzadeh are of course the standouts, and although these roster adjustments may seem positive, perhaps there is the off chance that they come back and bite the team in the backside some time this season.
However, this unfortunate scenario we can only wait for, and right now there are several players who have shed a tear or two due to the loss of their team position.
Who are these troubled players?
Unfortunately there are several of them, but the following list should highlight each one of them, and also suggest how these cuts may or may not affect said team.
