Not long I think. It was a noncontact injury, and he's got 2 weeks to prepare for us, so I think he'll be ready.

They have a game next week, although they play Oakland, so it's almost like a bye week.

Did anyone else get to see it? That was by far the funniest thing I've ever seen in a football game.

Shannon Sharpe said he hurt his foot by kicking the Cheifs in the butt all day. That was freakin hillarious.

The official description of the injury is a bruised heel. At least that is what the announcers were saying. There was absolutely no one anywhere close to him when it happened. It was a very odd looking way to get injured.

Remember Dan Marino rupturing his Achilles? IIRC he took the snap, dropped back to pass, and fell in a heap, with nobody near him. I saw a rugby player go down in very similar fashion recently - same injury. I haven't seen Eli's incident, but just because it looks innocuous, it doesn't necessarily mean it is innocuous.

Same thing happened to Billy Joe Hobert in a game against the Rams, season opener I believe. Just dropped back to pass and went down without being touch, ruptured achilles.
