Any dude off the street can do this.  I don't want my first rounder out there :D

That's understandable however Ridley can just as easily get hurt playing on offense. What will happen will happen. That's how I look at anyway

If he has to get hurt, at least do it at your own position instead of one of the most risky positions in the game.  Either way, hope dude doesn't get hurt B)

What a bunch of scaredy cats on this post. If JJ11 was the best option I would want him back there. Playing not to lose is an almost sure way to lose. The best player at the position needs to start no matter what

exactly Im not saying I want ridley as a full time kr guy but 8 times a yr sure why not. Just like I have no problem when julio has played db for us on hail marry attempts in the past. or ben garland getting a dt snap or when poe last yr was getting a fb/rb snap

Hope he doesn't get hurt either man. He can be a key cog to us

I say go for it , julio , the rb’s, the TE and Sanu all have to get the ball. Quinn has already said as much so Ridley may not get enough opportunities on the offense. Use him as KR/PR

LOL you sure about that? Roberts was garbo and he was paid well enough. Not sure if Gage is an option but we need some explosiveness back there.

It's not fear, it's using the best players at their best position.  Just don't see the point of risking dude in such a pointless way.

I'd use an explosive dude that's not our first round pick.

Do KR’s consistently get hurt? Steelers let AB do PR’s. 

Not in today's NFL.

I like his spirit but no, we need him opposite Julio too much to risk that

My feelings as well.  Maybe game situations, liked when quick scores are needed.

So far from what we’ve seen Ridley has been the best KR Plenty of players in the past have handled the double duty. I remember when we had possibly the best Corner in NFL history returning kicks with way less safety rules in place. Fans need to grow a pair and root for whatever it takes to hoist that Lombardi. I wish someone else would step up and perform equally to what Ridley has shown  but as of now he looks like our best option.  We desperately need a dynamic returner.

If we're using a rookie to return kicks, let's be reasonable about it. 

Gage...not Ridley. 

Gage is a gunner, not much of a returner.

Yup. I’m all fir Ridley getting touches unless he seriously moves Sanu as the number 2 WR. He’s probabky a #3 guy now.

think Hardy will stay with gage and hall coming on strong?

According to the NFL kickoffs/punts is when most injuries happen. But there are so many touchbacks on kickoffs and non returnable punts anymore it doesn't really matter as much.

Reggie Davis and Hall are having a pretty good battle for that last spot.

Is it the returner getting mostly injured or other positions?

He has been compared to Antonio Brown and the Steelers have no problem using him to return punts...

You can't play scared. You play to win. Put your best guys out there. Period.

But if Ridley is better then that's not putting the best out there.

If you're scared he'll get hurt then that's your problem. See how that works?
