It's a simple formula to fix. It's just hard to get done," Grossman said. Despite his recent struggles, head coach Lovie Smith is not planning to pull Grossman from the starting role. Smith said, "There's a difference between perception and reality. The reality is we're 10-2 right now. We just won the division with Rex at quarterback, so that's what I go on."

If you watch us out there and you know me you can tell it's affecting me. I'm trying to protect it a lot and I'm not switching the ball from hand to hand. I'm trying not to hold it with that hand." Doctors told Barber his injury is one they do not see often.
