Groin injuries are very much day-to-day things. Sometimes they take a long time to heal, or can be re-aggravated if the player comes back too soon. If it was a LT back injury, I don't think Maloney would get our hopes up by telling USA Today and Dave Vest that he's close to a return. He'd be on the IR.

Good news that all three injured players will likely get a game or two (or three) in before the playoffs.
