I like Dowling as a player. He's got some talent. But he's always injured and I heard on the radio, this was a problem with him going back to high school and college. I just wonder if he ever stays on the field. I mean I think it's wise to keep him on the roster going forward because unlike guys like Wheatley, he actually produces when on the field. But at some point, this guy has got to stay healthy. I hope its not a toughness issue with him and hopefully just bad luck that eventually stops.
