    If I had to guess I'd say they will be bringing in another vet this week.

    lots of amateur orthopedic surgeons out there..

    how about we wait for something from the professionals before jumping off bridges because or backup center, fourth string blocking TE and/or designated fight starter on ST may or may not be hurt

    Right....no one can speculate on anything. Forgot that. No one is jumping off bridges....just tired of your sorry everything is always great philosophy.

    So what are your concerns about the Jets this year??

    Im not saying losing Turner for time or the season would be bad but it will be overhyped no matter what...we would be so lucky to only lose a backup T in preaseason.

    Turner is our best backup o-lineman now that Hunter is a starter. I'd say he's pretty important.

    No one is "whipping themselves in the back". This is a message board to discuss the Jets. This is a thread discussing an injury to one of the Jets players. If you don't like it, don't read it. Stop whining about it and making it something it's not.

    Rex will tell you that he tweaked it and will be back practicing on Wednesday and if it was a real game he would have gotten back in there.

    The medical staff will tell you that it is a season ending injury!!

    Mangini would have told you that he hurt his finger but wouldn't tell you which one.

    If it was an ankle I would assume they did an xray last night and didn't find a break hence the MRI....but who knows what smoke is being blown....

    So you dont think there are any areas of concern about the team?? We all think that this is a very good team....but it still has some areas that could be issues this year. To just dismiss everything sarcastically when people bring up valid points is comical.

    Bro, what is the need to insult everyone in every single thread? Calm down, people are entitled to post their concerns and to be quite honest, Hunter out is a big concern.

    sorry

    don't think most of the points about depth after a first preseason game are VALID in any way

    Concerns?


    If Bart Scott is seriously injured, I'm concerned

    Robert Turner --- not concerned about backup centers all that much

    I agree. If Hunter is out, its a big concern. He is a starting RT, after all

    very true but that also means he is allowed to post in a manner which he so chooses.

    ...who is ALSO injured (although its minor).


    You guys need to find a middle ground. We've got lots of chicken littles and "sky is falling" types around here but we also have guys like sg3 who are convinced we'd win most games in which we only fielded 8 players.

    There are reasons for concern, sg3. This line is thin, Vlad looks like a weak backup at best, Woody retired and Turner is now hurt. Who did we add this offseason to potentially mitigate those 3 losses?

    You can't smash mouth with swiss cheese. At some point one or two of our 5 starters won't be there, and what's behind them looks horribly inadequate.

    fortunately, tanny created cap room to sign an experienced guy or two at a position of need. RT looks to be that position.
