Analysis: No position was affected more by injuries than wide receiver. Sanjay Lal's receiver room must have felt like a bus station, with near-constant coming and going. Eleven receivers played at least one snap. The top three wideouts -- Holmes, Hill and Kerley -- all missed time due to injuries. ... You knew this was going to be a tough year for Holmes, coming off a serious foot injury that hampered his ability to train in the offseason. That probably was the cause of his torn hamstring, which cost him five games. In case you're wondering, Holmes made $15,000 per snap, based on his $7.5 million salary. ... Hill finished the season on injured reserve for the second year in a row. ... Nelson, picked up off the street in Week 5, saved the unit from falling into total disarray. He led the group in playing time over the second half of the season.
