This is exactly why we signed the veteran OL this offseason. We were not going to have an injury; see Levitre or Fusco, derail our entire interior OL. Sad to see, but glad he has a shot to come b

Well...average is 6-8 but the foot has so many tiny bones that it makes it tricky.  That said, he is young, and they may be conservative.  If it is indeed 8, and he can come back right there, it would

Not necessarily as 8 weeks is more the max for a 5-9 week recovery on most foot breaks. Often they don't fully heal until the offseason; depending on the break. It's good news if he doesn't need

That must be worse than expected. 8 weeks for fracture is lot.

Well...average is 6-8 but the foot has so many tiny bones that it makes it tricky.  That said, he is young, and they may be conservative.  If it is indeed 8, and he can come back right there, it would put him back for our critical stretch of 5 weeks against divisional opponents in November.

Next man up.

Weird - it was strange the Falcons picked up 2 high-priced FA guards and then drafted one.  Now, we lose the drafted one but have one of the FA's around to "hopefully" take his place (assuming Schweitzer is not put in).  It almost seems like the team knew this injury was coming?

They didn't, but they were preparing to have depth at o-line in case it happened. Iinjuries happen all the time in football lol. We can't have depth at every single position, but the front office made **** sure we had at least good depth at o-line because they have 100s of millions of dollars tied up at QB and WR. Some people acted like it made no sense at the time, but it made plenty of sense to me and a lot of posters, and now we can see why.
