Air cast doesn't sound like good news
Air cast isn't good, he's done for the season and potentially his career. Big men don't recover well from significant leg injuries. This team is so snake bit...

Who else do we have aside from nick?

That doesn't seem like the type of injury that should ever result from simple drills. Wonder what in the world happened?

Could be worse. Probably 6-8 weeks to heal. It sucks but at least it isn't a tissue injury.

What source stated this? He could be back in a couple of months if not sooner on a broken fibula.
