Cable's status for Sunday's matchup with the talented Atlanta Falcons is still up in the air as his timetable for release from the hospital is still unknown. Knowing what I know about back surgery (which isn't much), standing on a sideline less that a week post-op can't be a doctor recommended activity, but then it's the NFL, the league of robots who feel no pain, so it wouldn't shock me if Cable was out there this Sunday. Hopefully he will be well enough to grab a headset this weekend and take his place on the sideline.
