Agreed. No reason to thrust him in too soon. We have enough firepower without him. Save him for after Carolina and ensure he's 100%. I don't want to see Vilma Sunday either.

Meachem played very well and caught a tough pass for a Touch Down.

Interesting. Did he have surgery? They could have screwed in a rod. If not the 4-6 weeks was way off the mark.

I doubt he plays. No need to rush him back we are doing fine with the guys we have. When he comes back he will just be icing on the cake. No need to risk further injury on teams we should beat anyway. If we lose to any of the next three games it wont be because we didnt have Colston.

The question is if it was a break or just a crack. I returned to sport after cracking my collarbone 2-3 weeks later without any problems. They would not clear him if it wan't healed.

He could be fine if there was either no dislocation or splintering. Once the bone starts to knit, he can resume non-contact practice, which he did. Must use combo CT+x-ray to make prognosis. He still has 2 more weeks to go...
