    I just saw this scrolling across the bottom of NFL Network. I haven't found any links yet.

    You hate to see any injury in preseason. If this was a regular season game it would probably be significant but now, assuming he won't play Saturday, probably just means that Mario will go against a backup tackle.

    That would be a shame....I was looking forward to seeing MW against a premier OT....

    I know. Now if Mario has a great game and Bush has a mediocre game we will be hearing about how Mario played against second string talent while Bush was going against starters.

    I think this is good news. I don't care how much potential MW has, if he went up against Pace, he was going to look Silly. Pace is probably still the BEST or at least top 3 left tackles in the league, and MW is still a rookie.

    MW will get to go against a backup, and will probably do pretty well. I think this will be a great confidence booster for him.

    I finally found a link with some information on this. It is not as bad as initially thought and the coach said that they will evaluate it to see if he will play Saturday.
