Isaiah Stanback injury: Maybe two weeks, maybe a lot more

 

So the latest on Isaiah Stanback appears to be he’ll miss 2-17 weeks. I’m serious, he’s going to try to rehab the shoulder without surgery and possibly be back in two weeks. If that doesn’t work, he’ll need surgery and could miss a lot of time or possibly the season. 

 

…and now Isaiah Stanback hurts his left shoulder in Friday's win over the Houston Texans, likely out a minimum of two weeks - maybe more.

 

Stanback, who injured his left shoulder in the same exact fashion he did last season - running back a kickoff - will eventually need surgery, but trainers are waiting to see if he first could play through the season. The rehab process without surgery will be at least two weeks long.

Now think about this. With Austin and Stanback out for the foreseeable future, we’re rolling into battle with T.O., Crayton, Hurd and a bunch of inexperienced question marks. Our fourth WR is going to be Danny Amendola or Mike Jefferson. I just can’t go with that, one injury to the top three and one of those two guys are playing serious minutes in a real game. We are going to have to sign a free agent WR or make a trade if Stanback is out for any amount of time. Keep your eyes open for WR cuts from other teams because I went searching for a list of WR’s who are still free agents and this is what I found.

Wide Receiver
Terry Glenn - The Miami Dolphins have shown interest in him.
Joe Horn - He really only wants to play for a Super Bowl contending team. Dallas and Philadelphia are possibilities although Andy Reid said he's not interested in signing another receiver despite the injury to Kevin Curtis.
Eddie Kennison - He recently told Sirius NFL Radio that he's interested in playing at least two more seasons.
David Givens - His career is in doubt after suffering a serious knee injury almost two years ago.
Koren Robinson - The troubled but talented receiver should find work closer to the start of the regular season.
Cedrick Wilson - He'll serve a one-game suspension to start the regular season.
Doug Gabriel - He was recently released by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Eric Moulds - He's received mild interest around the league.
Peerless Price - He's probably done playing because of a neck injury.
Keenan McCardell - He said recently that he still wants to play.
Aaron Moorehead - He offers a team value as a No. 4 receiver.

That’s a lot of over-the-hill or troubled receivers.
