>’Cats In Kenosha, Injury Bug Already Playing Big Role

>Argggh. Yes, injuries are part of football. However, the ‘Cats secondary – already one of the giant question marks of the upcoming season – took a step back with news Friday that safety David Arnold is out indefinitely with a foot injury. Also, WR Tony Jones will miss the opener with a shoulder injury, LB Roderick Goodlow could miss the season with a knee injury and then I held my breath reading news of superback Drake Dunsmore was “dinged up”. Dunsmore has been through quite a lot and for him to miss any time at this point is cause for concern. Let’s hope we’ve been served our injury challenges. Tough news, considering yesterday was the first day of pads and actually full contact.
