Coach Jones also seems loyal to the team and I don't think he would kick Courtney unless he had to.
I know that Courtney has a desire to have a coaching career. If we needed the room, do you think CJJ would consider giving him a graduate assistant role? (and no, I haven't heard that ever discussed before, but just thinking outside the box)
I understand the occasional need, but I just hate hanging hard workers out to dry. If the room was needed, Courtney might actually prefer a position where he could help analyze/prepare game film over tearing up that knee anymore than he already has (might be a bigger help to the team too).
