So he misses the first 2 or 3 games of the regular season... Could definitely be worse

Looks like good news then. 6-8 weeks isn't so bad.

Still Tate question remains, who rotates with nick?

Re: Sheldon Rankins Injured

I wouldn't bring him back until Week 8; designate him IR-To Return...

Young player, first round pick, alot invested in him; be patient on this one...

Eh, I don't think that's necessary. Broken bones actually heal stronger. If it were a tissue injury I would definitely agree, but in this case I'm not worried about it. An extra week or two to get back in shape and he should be fine.

Agree with this
Getting that leg strong,no risks.
If he danages it again it could be a career changer. Bite the bullet and let him get healthy. At least its only a fracture though and not a ligament

Ok so if he'll be back in October then I'm slowly backing away from the ledge.

Maabry should have a look as well. Jenkins needs to get out of the tub.
I like FA Corey Wooton or see if Kevin Williams is interested.

Assuming Fairley brings his A game (which he can), we should be ok. Loosing a promising rookie for 7 weeks or so won't make or break this team in 2016.

Trust and believe .
