Leonard to Miss 4-6 Weeks

Early reports are that 3rd-down specialist Brian Leonard will miss 4 to 6 weeks with a sprained foot.   This is not good news for a team that relies on Leonard’s versatility running and receiving. At this point, Leonard may be back for the opener, but his absence may linger beyond week one.  Foot injuries, especially for running backs, require time off to heal.

Add to this a lingering injury to Cedric Peerman, and an underwhelming performance from Cordera Eason (an undrafted free agent), and it looks like the team may need to grab a running back in the next few days.

Look for the team to have some backs in for a try-out tomorrow.

Brian Westbrook, an outstanding pass-catching back, is still waiting for a phone call.

I’m just saying…
