Because, now you've got Kelly thinking, "oh, he's going to play, but maybe they won't run the Read-Option. Maybe we should prepare for more of the traiditional stuff. They won't risk his knee." I could definitely see Shanahan orchestrating something to put that thought in the mind of the Eagles.
I dunno. If it's not cooked up, then my honest opinion is that Robert isn't ready, and shouldn't play. Either he's ready, and can do everything, or he isn't. If Robert can't do everything, he's not ready. Kirk, start warming up. Let's go get-em. If Robert is ready, and can do everything, go do your thing.
If both are hurt, Rex, you're up. If Rex is hurt ... Well, at that point, it really doesn't matter.
It's just that simple.
Yep, by now we know this is how Shanahan operates. Puts all kinds of additional pressure on the Eagles' preparation.
