The NFL’s all-hands team is bent out of shape. Literally, and figuratively.

Larry Fitzgerald may be pricing himself out of Arizona. Dwayne Bowe is locking onto footballs like a Hollywood starlet onto a wedding vow and Percy Harvin is hoping to show the folks in Seattle that if he were a horse they wouldn’t have to shoot him.

Meantime, in Detroit, Calvin Johnson believes he has put his finger on the issue.

He’s wearing a hand splint. Sometimes.

It has been a pre-season of complications for several of the NFL’s premier receivers. The biggest immediate concern surrounds Bowe, who has shown an alarming proclivity to divorce himself from far too many throws.
