What appeared to be a mild injury Sunday after the game, will now cause Jared Odrick to miss a significant amount of time. NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora is reporting that Odrick broke his right fibula and will be sidelined for six weeks.
Tony McDaniel and Randy Starks on a limited basis, as he moves over from nose tackle on occasion, will have to make do for now. But is anyone beginning to second guess Ireland’s decision to cut Marques Douglas and Charles Grant? Both were proven veterans, and were perfect for this exact situation. Douglas was stout against the run and Grant flashed a bit rushing the passer in training camp.
Let’s just hope the run defense can hold together, especially in the next two weeks as the Vikings and Jets have two of the top rushing attacks in the league.
