Haden has a fractured Fibia. Well, next man up Cody!! If Mitchell is out, do we activate Sutton?

In 1992 Neil O'Donnell broke his right Fibula and played again in 5 weeks.

Exactly. Haden will be back this season. From what I skimmed, estimates are anywhere from 4-8 weeks. When he comes back "full time" will depend on the playoff scenario (will the Houston and Cleveland games have much meaning?), but you can be pretty confident we'll have him back for the playoffs.

There are fractures, and there are fractures. I agree with your time line he walked of the field, it should be on the short end of your estimate 4-6 weeks, assuming no screws, rods or plates are needed. Didn’t Jack Youngblood play in Super Bowl 14 on one?

With Houston playing like an NCAA Div II team with all their injuries, and the Brownies being....well, the Brownies - both these games make me more nervous than the Pats.  We play notoriously bad against bad teams.

Optimistically we get Joe Haden back in week 11. Barring anything unforeseen he will definitely be back this season. Sensabaugh held his own and actually I'd am looking forward to seeing more from Wilcox.

I just hope they blitz more.  Turn Watt, Dupree, and Harrison loose.  I think doing that would help the secondary.

No surgery for Haden.

Harrison?   Who's this 'Harrison' guy you speak of?  I've seen very little of this fictional "Harrison"......

Lol
