Healthy scratch. Ouch.
Sinorice Moss had a lot going for him.
He was from an established NFL family, as older brother Santana Moss had had a measure of success playing the same position.
However, he was injured his first season, and the next year the Giants drafted fellow wide receiver Mario Manningham, so Moss' looks went down.
This was exacerbated when Moss lost looks to the next season's rookie wide receiver, Hakeem Nicks.
So Moss was a guy who had run out of opportunities because highly drafted guys vaulted up the depth chart. Not really his fault, right?
Moss finally got a shot to earn some gametime when he seized the kick return duties from injured Domenik Hixon, only to get hurt himself. Strike two.
Moss was released by the Giants and found himself on the dream team, the Philadelphia Eagles.
Better yet, the Eagles wide receivers had injury histories possibly even worse than his own, as Jeremy Maclin had a lymphoma scare (that turned out to be an inflammatory virus), DeSean Jackson has ongoing concussions in 2010 and then held out just before the deadline in 2011, and the Eagles picked up fellow ex-Giant Steve Smith, who was an immediate addition to the physically unable to perform list.
Moss was the healthiest wide receiver going into the season, so he should have stood out, right?
Nope. Cut. Ouch.
