    Unfortunate but he's backing up 2 guys who've never missed a game, minus the DB suspension.

    Now this is going to be a HUGE problem. We're going to need a swing ASAP.........and not a rookie. I'd be curious to know if this were a football injury..............or weight training injury.

    Is tackle really a high-risk position for injury? I'm not worried.

    Guys in the trenches get their legs rolled on all the time. I'm worried especially if its Duane that goes down

    Yeah, this is how we lost Pitts. Nick Mangold is out a few weeks after getting rolled up on last week. It happens a lot during inside runs because the linemen are trying to block around the RB and they get into a confined spaces with 300 pound guys going to the ground.

    Second thought was to wonder what Ephraim Salaam is doing these days.

    Linemen, either side, are at the heart of the team. You gotta have 'em. Not good news, but survivable if they get someone in quickly enough.

    I imagine Newton is the ''next man up'' if we need another tackle but yeah, not a great situation to be in.

    Not good news.....

    I am also expecting some type of "payback" this week for our offensive line hurting a Saints D-lineman during a chop-block in pre-season.
