The week rounded out with more of the same, for the most part - but two early injuries have shown some flaws to the team's depth. Ian Scott, who was starting with top 3 DT Damione Lewis, Maake Kemoeatu, and Darwin Walker nursing minor injuries, went down with a knee injury. Then, so did Ryne Robinson.
Scott's injury is minor. Robinson's injury, though without an MRI as of yet, should be minor. Still, it leaves the team without its top returner and a key reserve at DT - when the top 3 are already hurt. While some don't believe in Lewis or Kemoeatu, try on the fearsome duet of Gary Gibson and Stephen Williams, a potential starting duo in the Indianapolis game.
Plus, the team has to find a return man while Robinson heals. Either Scott or Robinson could be out through the first regular season game.
And while those two are hurt, perennially injured backups Nate Salley and Adam Seward are hurt again, too. Seward, who could've started last year at MLB with Dan Morgan out, couldn't stay healthy as long as Morgan and Jon Beason was moved inside. Salley was expected to start last year at FS and never saw the field. While I find a lot of hope in Seward still, the team has options that are healthier and better than either of these players.
