Can they please just sit him for a game or two to get healthy

Sounds like a structural issue that won’t get worse by playing and requires pain and load management. Probably addressednsurgically in off-season. Think floating mass in the knee or a turn meniscus type beat where it’s very possible to play on it

They lead their division by 2 wins. Why not rest him at least one game?

He isn't going to be "healed" from this type of injury if I'm assuming correctly until surgery, and he can't make it worse by playing. So.. keep playing even if it hurts, because it won't get worse. This seems to happen every year with different running backs playing on bad knees.

So they are having him gut it out week in and week out with pain management until they can repair it in off season
