So now comes a critical stretch for a promising 29-year-old linebacker who has his career hanging by a thread. Bishop must be careful to not reinjure himself. But he must also push harder than ever to win over a curious coaching staff and the front office folks who rolled the dice on him.

“Can he get back to his form quick enough to show us that he’s worthy of winning a roster spot?” Frazier said. “He has a short window now. … This is the NFL. If a guy can’t be available, he really can’t help your team. As talented as he may be, you need guys who are available. But he understands that. It’s pressure. But that’s our league.”
