I’m honestly more concerned about Horn’s injury than CMC. I think Chuba had his first game on the road without playing significant minutes before. Him getting better as the game went showed he was capable. Chuba and Royce aren’t the worst combo to fall back on, plus other players got worked in like Marshall, and Tremble. We have a lot of weapons on offense plus Shi Smith should be coming back soon. CMC’s injury stings but we should be able to adjust and he should be back this year.
Horn’s injury makes DJax slide to the 1CB and who knows (I hope Bouye) plays 2CB. I’m not sold on DJax at the 1 due to his size, he is great at the 2. That’s a drop off in two spots on the secondary and it takes away valuable game reps for a rookie, plus he could be out for a while. Let’s hope ole Snow has a few tricks up his sleeve (and I bet he does).
We dominated three NFL offenses. That isn't nothing. We'll see what we look like in week 4. That will answer a lot of questions. I don't know if we'll win next week or not, but I bet the Cowboys do not run the score up on our defense.
I couldn’t put any weight on my leg after I tore my hamstring and had an exaggerated limp when I would walk through the pain. He doesn’t have a full tear.
He will probably miss a couple of games. The good news is that Sam was forced to make throws to a bunch of other receivers and our backup RBs were forced to find ways to get yards and they all did it. Will be a big confidence boost going into the Dallas game. Would’ve been a lot worse to lose CMC in the Dallas game and then figure out life without him with bullets flying.
