Kosier out six weeks

The injury bug seems to have bit our team in the behind once again.

The DMN Blog is reporting Kyle Kosier could miss up to six weeks with his injury.

Left guard Kyle Kosier could miss up to six weeks because of a sprained right foot and hairline fracture. Kosier left Texas Stadium in a walking boot.

Joe Berger is the favorite to take over for Kosier.

This is tough news on several fronts as Grizz has pointed out. Our line looked dominant, cohesive and physical in Friday's game. Anything that messes up the chemistry of that group is troubling. Berger has potential but is fairly untested and will immediately be singled out as a weak spot on our Pro Bowl caliber line. Also if Kosier is out six weeks he'll miss roughly the first month of the schedule. We've got some tough games against Philly, Green Bay and Washington where he'll be sorely missed.

Isaiah Stanback also separated his left shoulder and is doubtful to play Thursday versus the Vikings, according to the DMN Blog. The game just got so much bigger for Mike Jefferson and Danny Amendola.

The biggest blow to the team is Stanback, we doubt he will play on Thursday night against Minnesota, because it cause depth issues at wide receiver.

Just tough on all fronts.

Shout out to Deke and his fanpost here.
