Why do we have so many injuries?

    As I'm posting this, Steve McKinney's just gone down. But, seriously, doesn't it seem like we get bitten by the injury bug much more than any other team in the NFL? Jacoby, AJ, Killings, Green? This is ridiculous.

    So McKinney's done for the season now with a blown knee?

    Any word on JJ?

    The bug is on us, there's just no other way to look at it and it doesn't do any good to worry about it. You just have to keep on plugging away.

    It's not like we aren't a few players away anyway. As long as Faggins is back there we're going to suffer and even with his incompetent butt trying to cover receivers from 8 yards away (what does he think he's doing? The Jedi Mind Trick?) we still came close to coming back on the Colts despite not having AJ, Dayne, Green after the first quarter, and Jacoby at the end.

    We do NOT have any more injuries than any other of the 31 teams. Injuries are part of the game. It was just one of those games.

    I predicted 10-6 barring injuries . . barring injuries.

    Watching the way he was holding his arm as he was walking to the dressing room, don't be surprised if it's a dislocated or separated shoulder.

    And exactly how long does that usually take a player out?

    Wait, where is the information about McKinney's knee?

    I know he went back into the game after the original injury and Kubiak said in his presser that it is a sprained knee. The only one he said for sure was going to miss time was Jacoby Jones. JJ has a AC separation and will miss some time. They will do an MRI for more info.

    This is what Kubiak said about all the injuries:

    I will miss JJ more if AJ doesn't get back in soon, but how long is JJ suppose to be out. Maybe four weeks? Part of me wishes that bye week was here already.

    Depends on how severe the separation is - if it is a type 1, JJ will only miss a week or so - if it is a type 3 or higher - well, then you are talking a month or two. This is most distressing, I must say.

    I am re-watching parts of the game right now. I had a blast today tailgating and at the game even though we did not win. Our team played good against a strong team, especially the way we rebounded from the injuries. But these injuries really hurt us, we need a couple more years under Smith/Kubiak to build the kind of depth it takes to still win under this type of duress.
