Might not make it back in time to start next season depending on how bad it is. Hope it doesn’t kill his career, he has really gotten good.

Iím fine with Kelemete playing LG, but now this means we have to rely on Armstead being able to complete a game and thatís terrifying.

Peat's had a great season, moving from LG to Lt and back. The running game has been better w/ 75 @ LG. Kelemente has been great when called upon.

Broken fibulas donít take long to heal. We just ****ed up the recovery of Breaux. Itís not the weight bearing bone in the leg. You rarely have surgery on it either. They just put you in a walking boot and watch it until it heals back together.

Yeah I just read where 4-6 weeks initially so long as there isn't other damage. Lots of xrays along the way. He'll be fine next year.

Are you saying it's just a flesh wound?
