The Quinton Patton Tank of Truth

Is there any team out there getting screwed over by injuries more than us right now?

Falcons maybe?
It's a bad byproduct of having had to play extra playoff games into Feb last year (without the payoff of the ultimate goal ) tho a lot if the injuries are hitting players that weren't even on the team last year (rooks) or weren't regular starters.
Dang. Just dang.

Who doesn't love this Niner Patton? Man this is a bummer.

Well, looks like its Baldwin time. He was picked 26 overall for some reasons you know and with the right team, US, that could start to show up more and more and more as things progress.

Dude is going to be good, but he's already following Crabs' footsteps (get injured a lot before making serious impact)
Bumbed he's out but don't know what all the hype is about with this guy. He's not big fast or block well. I suppose he's shifty but I think you need more than that to make an impact in the NFL. A couple good preseason showing dosnt make a star
Guys relax he came from one of the smaller colleges so I didn't expect him to contribute immediately. This could hinder his development physically, but this could bode well mentally. Learning from guys like Boldin and Crabtree can help him a lot when he returns and he will be one of those first-ones-in-last-ones-out kind of guys during offseason workouts.
Heard tonight that they were keeping him on the active roster and expect a speedy recovery. Is that possible?

Tough to say. Depends what he broke in his foot. Could be anywhere between 4 to 12 weeks. It's encouraging they expect a quick recovery. Would have been a good candidate for IR/designated to return, but we already used it on Moody.

I was surprised he could be back given a broken bone and hope they avoid another Crabtree type of recurrence. It's an interesting season with so much in the air about the receivers. I really like Boldin and would like to see what he could do alongside Crabtree. Very different type receivers and they may really really be a troublesome duo for the league to cover.

Sadly, this teams luck (or lack of luck) with WRs is getting very tiresome.

Edit--really want to see Crabtree, Boldin, Manningham and Patton healthy together...can dream!

Foot bones are tricky healers. Some bones get better blood supply than others, hence some will heal quickly, others can take a while. The fact they are not putting him on IR indicates this is one of the bones that typically heals quickly. Let's hope that is the case.

One can hope! The injuries we've had at WR for the past several seasons has been really odd and frustrating. It's never ending. Hopefully we can get the entire core group healthy at some point. It would turn a team weakness into a strength.

The poor quality over the past ten years...and then they get some quality but injuries mount up...just mind boggling.

It's one of the small bones in the foot. I say he's out 4-6 weeks.

Hopefully the injury doesnt turn into a Garrison Hearst scenario.

Hearst broke his fibula (small bone in the lower leg). It is known as being one of the hardest to heal.

All bones in the foot except the ankle and heel bone are small. I am assuming it is a metatarsal bone (thin, long bones directly posterior to the toes). That should heal relatively quickly.
