Maybe a blessing in disguise? He could use a week or two to get his knee closer to right, anyway.

I'm curious whether or not he'll be able to return with a hand brace or something similar.

Is this a surgery that will keep him out though? Or can he Fred Thomas it for a bit?
I would expect any incision is going to have to heal completely before he could play - even in a cast. I could be wrong though.

I just read he will be week to week. So hopefully it won't keep him out too long. Maybe soft cast to play
I can definitely believe that if next week were a playoff game, he'd have that hand braced and taped and Lattimore would play.

Being that we're going into Week Two, and his knee was already bothering him ... the calculus will likely be different. But then -- this is why Loomis keeps working to churn the roster and never gets complacent with his roster maintenance.
