Etienne has Lis Franc injury

Recommended Posts

No word yet on how severe, but that punches a hole in his early season role at the least. And James Robinson comes to the rescue once again it seems.

It will be interesting to see how far up Robinson goes after this 

Oh, he's going way up!

The challenge now is how long it takes Etienne to recover and return to full health. It could set up the Jags backfield shifting roles at the end of the season when you need a back the most, but for the near future at least, this is a major boon for Robinson to return more to last year. Carlos Hyde may be involved a bit more.

Next year. Remember when Darren McFadden had it and kept trying to play all season and never could?

Hyde will most certainly be involved.  Urban Meyer wanted Hyde, and didn't go out and sign him for nothing.  It wouldn't surprise me at all if it's a full on split between Robinson and Hyde to start the season.

Schefter is tweeting out for the season.

 

I'm in a slow main event draft in FFPC ($2000 entry) and some guy drafted Etienne about 45 minutes ago...ouch.

I'm good. I just traded Michael Thomas for Dobbins today. I'm real deep at WR. Etienne was a later round pick, it.won't kill me.

That sucks. Happens every summer - hope he's the last one.

That's going to leave a mark on some teams. I'll be interested to see if some uninformed owner at our draft takes him. Might be a guy to sign off waivers late in the season in a keeper/dynasty for 2022 value. 

 

I think in another 3-5 years virtually no starters will play in pre-season, teams would rather do these organized team activities against another team, where they have a lot more control of the situations. Pretty sure all the Browns starters were in against the Giants in those sessions Thu/Fri, but none (or very few) have seen the field so far, and I doubt that changes in Atlanta this weekend.

I took over a weak Dynasty team a few months ago. Only good RB was Akers (who is now out for the season), so I drafted Etienne( Harris was already gone), now also out for the season
