Wow, that game against the Chargers was a fucking nightmare. Losing Jonathan Cooper for the season is huge. You could tell from the reaction of his fellow players. He was the most talented player on the offensive line and its going to be tough to replace him.
But hey ! Rashard Mendehall is going to be available for the season opener. Man, it would be nice to have a starting running back who isn’t constantly injured. Is that asking to much? Mendenhall is coming off a knee injury. What are the odds his knee will last the whole 2013 season? Just hope and prey people.
Mendenhall rushed six times for 47 yard on Saturday night in the 24-7 loss to the San Diego Chargers before leaving with an injured knee. It was the same knee that caused him to miss time in 2012. After the game he said his knee felt loose.
