DISREGARD. Was writing post before I saw the previous couple of replies.

I'd say prepare for AT LEAST 8 weeks. Depending on severity/complications, could be longer.

It's not just waiting for the bone to heal. It's then getting the strength back. Then it's working your way back to game shape. Then it's getting back up to speed with all the missed snaps up to then.

There's stories of fibulas that took only 3 weeks to completely heal, and then there are those that say they were never the same. So whatever the case, I hope he doesn't get rushed back too early.

We do still have Fairley and Davidson, so hopefully the others can step up behind them for the forseeable future.

True, and we also have Jenkins and Richardson who can slide inside pretty effectively. If Jenkins is at 330 he's probably a good fit for pushing the pocket. If he's back up top 360+, he doesn't really help us there at all.

Its a blow, but its not devastating.

Jairus Byrd, Keenan Lewis, Hau'Oli Kikaha, Victor Butler, Stephone Anthony and now Sheldon Rankins.
It's a good thing we still have a offense...

OK, I looked as hard as I could to detect sarcasm in this post.
None detected.
Are you serious?
There is nothing in that post that is even remotely sensible.
Each player is an individual.
They are human beings that are as susceptible to stresses on their bodies as any other human would have.
SEC players do not have bones that are more dense than Big East players.
Do you think that some conferences pump adamantium into their players' bones to make them freaking Wolverine?

This is one of the most illogical, meaningless preseason stats out there and that is saying a lot.

It's devestating not having your predicted starter starting that NEVER works out, & if so name a time I like Richardson there but Jenkins isn't going to suffice there a reason we drafted Rankins where we did or even bringing Kevin Williams back would soften the blow but the damage is done

Kevin Williams has signed a one day contract with the Vikes and has announced his retirement.
Done deal guys.
