Schilens Breaks Foot

Somehow my posting from work didn’t go through. I had previously posted about Chaz Schilens breaking his fifth metatarsal. The broken foot means he will be out for at least 4 weeks. My guess was 6-8 for a full recovery.

For more details regarding the injury, this is a good source. and so is this

Hopefully it isn’t anything serious that would require surgery such as a Jones fracture. So far it sounds pretty straight forward.

It is hard to glean anything from these scrimmages, but one thing is apparent, the run defense is still struggling. The added area of weakness is the linebacker on backs in pass coverage, but that did improve in the afternoon session. Typically we had been pretty good in that area so chalk that up as a morning anomaly.

Russell and Garcia were a bit inconsistent, but I’m not sure what to think of that. If Garcia was clearly outplaying Russell or vice versa it would be a little easier to see what was going on, but that isn’t the case.

DHB, Walker, Higgins and company are going to need to step up big time in the absence of Schilens.

Hopefully, Schilens heals quick and we can get him back within 4 weeks and in time for the season. That is highly dependent on the type of fracture. A Jones fracture being the worst of them.
