Not just yet.
Those examples don't really apply in this case. Roethlisberger is not a running quarterback, for one, but he played horribly with that injury last year. Gronkowski obviously has to run, but as I remember, he was a complete non factor in the Superbowl and the Patriots lost.

So this isn't something to take lightly. If they manage him right he'll be ok, so it's not panic time, but it is legitimate cause for concern.

Re: Saints LB Curtis Lofton sprains ankle

Saints LB Curtis Lofton (high ankle sprain) insists he could play this week if it was a regular season game.

"I'm feeling good," Lofton said. "Just doing what I'm told. Just taking care of it. It's still preseason so it's still early. But once Week 1 rolls around, I'll be ready to go." Lofton said he played through a similar injury in the final three games of last season.
