I know for a RB it might be really hard if your ankle is hurt though.
I guess with the NFL injury rules you have to report a hangnail these days too.
Ankle sprains are tricky because they can be of varying severity. Deuce McCallister (sp?) of New Orleans is expected to miss up to 4 weeks with a sprained ankle. Then there is the dreaded high ankle sprain that one of the Browns suffered against Dallas, and I think he's expect to miss most of the season.
I still think Priest will start because he's a key to their offense when it's clicking.
