As someone that has broken their foot twice. At the very least that’s a 4-6 week injury depending on where he broke it it could be 6-8 weeks. That’s 6-8 weeks of no running no conditioning it’s trash 

with a high rate of reinjury. a football player with brittle feet is similar to a boxer with brittle hands. It can and has derailed careers

And it’s completely possible the doctors will want to have surgery and put a plate on it. It’s all bad

IR him with no option of return...

I don't care if it's a 4 week or a 10+ week injury... this isn't a SB contending team yet and this kid looks like he has legit top 5 CB potential in this league.

If we were actual SB contenders, then sure, do what we can to get him back this year, but we're not, so let him heal up 1,000% and come back next year, don't risk his future as he has super high end potential.

IR him and it's like we get 2 first rounders to the team next year.

Today was the most depressing loss I can remember experiencing.

I mean we have no idea the severity right now. There's no reason to IR him to not return if he'll be fully healed in 8 weeks. I have no clue, maybe it is season ending but we don't know. And also we won

The severity doesn't matter if it's actually a broken foot... if he broke his foot, it's at minimum a 4 week injury, and even that would be quick.

But let's say he was completely out for 4 more weeks, that means a week 8 return to practice and probably a week 9 return to games.

Is it really worth rushing back a guy with his potential to play in 7 more games when we're not going to be serious SB contenders, while risking further injury?

If he breaks his foot twice in one year because he was rushed back, forget his top 5 CB potential, we're looking at a middling CB at best.

I've always been someone who is able to look at the greater and long term good than short term below average wins.  Had no problem rooting for us to lose in 2010, a losing season to get a difference maker is totally worth it in my opinion (and should be in any REAL fans minds).

If this team was a legit SB contender it would be different, but even with Horn fully healthy, we're just not there yet.  It's no knock on this team, they're great, but just very young and there are teams ahead of them for SB contention.  So I'm fine just letting him heal up, worst case scenario not having him out there costs us a game or two and helps us in draft positioning in the end.

Thank God it's only a broken foot but most importantly FUG TNF.....NFL should do away with it, the injury rate in these games is way to high 

Selfishly, as a fan, I love it because it feeds that football fix every 4 days, but when it's your team on the end of all the injuries, I'm all for nixing it myself.

We lost our offensive superstar and our #1 draft pick on defense in the same night bc of this bulllshit.  And I definitely think it's even tougher on the road team in these games...  but, yeah, tonight was enough for me.  At least push it to Fridays and give them one more day of treatment and such...  for all the fun and entertainment these games provide, it just isn't worth all the players that are lost to injury.

He’s playing a different role. You have me wondering when Myles Hartsfield returns. Myles could fill in for AJ and Bouye take over for Horn. 

He is but he can age has played outside CB well. Elder can be our nickel.

How the hell do you break your foot running around by yourself?

Diet..............not getting the right nutrients...............calcium is the key..........plus any consumption of soft drinks destroys bone tissue................add it up
