    thats what I heard too, I thought I heard the announcers say it was a sprain so it can't be anything too serious.

    Sometimes soft-tissue injuries like sprains take longer to heal than a clean break.

    It looked "PAINFUL" on the replay....

    I hope he is REALLY "OK"

    Fred's Injury couldn't have come at a worse time for him. I think we have some good young guards that might warrant the PT though. If Spencer comes back if he's not all there to play LT he'd fit nicely in at RG.

    Why? He was pretty solid inside and you want as much depth as you can find.

    If it is a break, those heal quicker than a strain or sprain.

    Well, before the draft, I can count 11 potential roster spots on the OLine, not counting Weary:

    Winston
    Pitts
    Spencer
    Myers
    Frye
    Butler
    Eslinger
    GWhite
    Briesel
    Studdard
    Salaam

    So, if we don't draft any linemen, we'd have to re-sign Weary and cut three of the guys listed above

    I have no idea whether guys like Butler, Frye, Eslinger are going to be all-pros or complete busts.
