D*MN!!!!!...This guy is the kind of pound away running back that we need and the waiting is already agonizing as it is. I know he feels 10 times as bad. He shouldn't rush back so fast but he does have some time....maybe by game 3.
Someone like a Gallman, Davidson and Brooks will have no choice to step up now. Speaking of Choice he too must step it up. Hope we can keep M.Alexander healthy this time as well on the defense. Get well Tyshon....get well.
