Yea but screws are a pretty good sign it could be serious. May not hurt his carrying skills but if they wanted to use him on a screen you can forget about it. We have Pierre for that anyway so I am not too concerned.

I hope Kyrie was paying attention.

MI could be out a month; I know it could be longer, for his hand to heal.

If that timetable holds, he could be available for limited use October 19th against the Lions.

The next 3 games are vs Packers, @ Panthers vs 40-whiners. Hopefully he will have a fire in his gut and pick up where he left off.

It takes 3 months for a broken bone to fully heal; I can't see him being close to ready in a month...

Ingram comes back in the playoffs to blow to socks off of Seattle

I had screws placed in my left knee, never played an NFL down after that.

T.O. came back and played for the Eagles in the Super Bowl 3 weeks after breaking his femur. Had a decent game too. I remember thinking wtf!!!

I'm just telling you what the doctor told me when I almost broke my finger awhile back.

Said it would take three months for the bone to fully heal, but take around 6 months for me to get back to bowling...

Ended up being a deep tissue bone bruise though and 2 months later I'm still struggling with stiffness and pain in the hand

I think Ingram may come back after the bye week. Noticeable difference in our rushing attack without him in, hopefully that is due to the vikings. It is hard to ignore the success ingram was having vs the other backs, getting 1.5 yds per carry more than everyone else is significant.
