    NFL | J. Stewart could miss 4-6 months
    Wed, 12 Mar 2008 19:24:42 -0700

    Mike Mayock, of the NFL Network, reports University of Oregon RB Jonathan Stewart (toe) has a big toe injury that MRIs are recommending surgery to correct. He faces a four-to-six month recovery with the surgery.

    Guess this takes him out of the first rd.

    Maybe not.. He would be back for the start of the season. It's just a toe.

    Ah, don't underestimate the power of the toe. You need it to cut, push off, take off, run, basically do anything that an RB might need to do.

    (stating the obvious here, I know, and not trying to insult your intelligence)

    It could end up being an expensive toe, though, if he slides at all.

    I know what you mean, but I haven't heard of many toes being career threating.

    He also played in college. This is the big leagues. Everyone is big, fast and strong. There are no easy games.

    I wonder how this effects the FO thinking, my guess is not very much, they seem to be a long view group of people that won't mind waiting if they think Stewart is the BPA.

    How great would it be to have an early 2nd round pick right about now?

    the Bills drafted Willis McGahee #23 overall in 03 & he tore his acl in the Hurricanes bowl game.

    my best guess is that the he (Jonathan Stewart) goes to the Chargers with the 27th overall selection :shades:

    Yeah, but how do you think the Bills pick of McGahee turned out? I know it wasn't all health related, but I don't think he turned out to be what they hoped.

    However, you may very well be right about the Bolts. Even if the more pessimistic of the reports I've seen indicate a 6 month recovery time, so it's not nearly as bad as it could be.

    I dont see ant reason why the bolts would take 1st rd RB, even if Stewart is there. I imagine that they wait til the 3rd at the very earliest to replace Turner. While they dont have many needs they still have more pressing areas than 2nd string RB.

    Well no way was Kubes going to use a first round on a RB anyway. I am more concerned with losing the 6th round if we sign Brown. I was hoping to get a 1000 yarder "just plug 'em in back".

    Why would we lose a 6th rounder for Brown? He's an UFA. You must be thinking of the C Chris Myers we're looking at. He's a RFA that would cost us a 6th if we were to make an offer that wasn't matched by the Broncos.:)

    Thanks for the correction but the focus should be on the "Plug in back that can get 1,000 yds in this offense" sarcasm.

    We tried that. His name was Wali Lundy. He didn't work out.

    LT is 29, been injured & unable to tote the rock when needed the most (AFC Championship) & Turner is gone via FA. having LT buys them time for a complete recovery & Stewart @ #27 is bpa. those are just a few reasons for you to digest (I dont see ant reason :elle: ).

    The difference is that McGahee was most likely going to be a Texan until that injury. He was likely the #3 overall selection and considered an elite talent. Stewart does not seem like that and was already projected down towards 20. McGahee fell 20 spots, though I don't expect Stewart to fall that much, he will drop if this is true, and the Chargers could go with the Chiefs route and take a productive college RB in the first with a studly RB ahead of them.
