That's bad news about Wells, at least it's just a sprain for Wiegert and nothing is broken.

High ankle sprains are bad, and can linger the whole season...he will probably miss the rest of the preseason. JMO

Actually its the same kind of injury suffered by Wade last year and he was never the same the rest of the season. High ankle sprains, if that's what it is, are very bad news. It might be worse than that and require surgery.....

I actually would hope that its not as bad as that, but that's what others in the know are saying. I was simply passing on what I'm reading and hearing on this issue.

Wiegert would probaly be better off if he had broken the ankle, very bad sprains usually take longer to heal then broken ankles; espically teh dreaded and feared high ankle sprain. This is by far teh worst thing that happen on Sat night.

Dom gave Riley the start and he drove the defender into the back of Weigert's leg. This is all Dom's fault. lol

Let's just hope there wasn't any serious ligament damage done.

I don't give thought to Ibar's posts anymore. No objective balance . . . always takes the gloom and doom Chicken Little viewpoint.

If you want negativity, eat this one. We will probably lose one or two more players next week to injury, probably another OL player. Then, the following week, there will be another couple players hurt . . one of which will buy now, be lost for the season. Then, in the final preseason game, we will probably lose one or two more of our 1st team starters to injury, as the team gets ready for Buffalo.

Injuries are part of the game. But the extent of the injuries will determine the W-L record this season, more than any other factor. But you never take that into account when you make your predictions

Now, how's that for negativity?

While you are being satirical, you might actually be right. The problem is we do not have any depth and any injury to a starter is a real negative for us. We generally have not been lucky in the injury department for what ever reason. Lets hope we really don't get any more.

Sounds like a good candidate for IR to me.

As I posted in another thread, I am of the opinion that we still need to find our eventual replacement for Banks. I know it was only the first preseason game but Symons and Ragone both looked atrocious to me.
This after having applauded the Ragone pick.
