So this may be a advantage for us come sunday
Yes, it looks as though Rogers broke his collarbone and is probably out for the season. Prelimenary reports say Bly sprained his MCL and is out 3+ weeks. That was the good news for you, now the bad, the Lions still have 3 very capable receivers, Williams, Hakim, and Streets and Goodman (Bly's replacement) is pretty good. In fact, he started his rookie year and was hurt last season, plus we still have Bryant.

Should be an interesting game. I am doing a write-up for the matchup for a lions MB, I'll post the link when I finish (hopefully tomorrow). Do any of you guys meet for games in Houston? I was thinking of going to BW3 on W. Gray.
