Deone Bucannon on notice over surgery

New, comments

Haason Reddick is garnering a lot of praise, Bruce Arians is making sure everyone knows.

There is one thing we know about Bruce Arians and that is simply he has no time or use for injured players.

We saw his handling of Jonathan Cooper, Kevin Minter and Justin Bethel.

Now, he's got Deone Bucannon in his sights.

“Classic Wally Pipp," Bruce Arians said Wednesday. "[Haason] is getting every single rep. He looks damn good”.

Arians is letting it be known now, like he did with Bethel last year and rookie Brandon Williams, that it doesn't matter where you were drafted or what you did the year before, you have to earn that spot every year.

One thing working in Bucannon's favor is the fact he has a history, while many other players had not proven as much as Bucannon.

On the flipside, Arians likes to make a point.

It's early, but you can tell Arians is losing his patience for long offseason injuries and late surgeries.

It will be something to watch moving forward.
