MT doesn't do "standard" as I would expect sooner rather than later. However, what a great opportunity to expand the passing playbook that basically has been all MT. When Drew used to find 8 different receivers in a game we were more dynamic IMO.
Weve got more than enough weapons to catch but they need to catch it 99% of the time to replace MT.
Get well MT.
Yeah he will beat the timelines all these pundits are throwing at him guaranteed. Just like Drew did with the thumb last year. I think we’ll be fine but not having him against GB particularly in these next few games would suck

Clueless on what? TQS isn't MT's backup. It's also not a knock on TQS, he's in there being a physical receiver which is what he's asked to do. I've always defending TQS, just check my post history on him.

Also, I'll accept your apology.
Mike T role is just that no one can replace that . But you said Trequan would be in just to block yes your wrong about that HE will get his chances to showcase his skills

Does anyone else think Kamara will line up as receiver on some plays and Murray might get more looks as a workhorse? Or Payton might use both in the backfield.

Dang. Figured the early reports were too good to be true. It would be tough for the offense to be worse than it was sunday with or without him.

I don't want to see a single person who is right now saying "we'll be fine" using MT as an excuse if we lose. And to the person who said we play nothing but trash cans, Oakland and Green Bay are not trash cans, especially Green Bay.


Do I think we can still win? Of course. Do I think we are "fine"?. Not really.

I don't think anyone is really looking forward to playing without Mike. I think people are just saying we trust the depth, coaching and other weapons. There are plenty other weapons that can and will get involved in the offense. Also, there fully exists the possibility that the offense will go into a full funk without him. But Mike played week 1 and the offense was stank. So itll be hard to judge if its him not being there, or a continuation of week 1 stank.

If it's a very severe sprain (broken bones / torn ligaments) it can require surgery. (season ending?)

If it's less severe, it can take up to 10 weeks.

Moderate sprains can be 4-6 weeks.
(I think Sequan Barkly had a moderate sprain last year and he missed 3 games)

If it's mild, it can take 1-3 weeks.


Any assumption at this point would be pure speculation since we have no info.

I'm not too concerned about Monday night. We have enough weapons to outscore the Raiders indoors, and with no crowd.
