Heyer, Wade Will Miss Two Weeks

Stephon Heyer looked rusty in the Hall of Fame Game and his injury will likely keep him that way for the next few weeks. Heyer's strained knee will keep him out for two weeks.

Another backup tackle, Todd Wade is also sidelined for at least two weeks with a high ankle sprain. These two losses really hurt the Skins' depth along the offensive line.

Jon Jansen struggled in limited action, his first in almost a year. I expect him to regain most of his ability by the regular season and play well, but he might have suffered one injury too many.

Fortunately Chad Rinehart has looked good at tackle and guard so he can fill any holes. However, Randy Thomas is also coming off an injury, Pete Kendall is ancient, and Chris Samuels recently had some particles removed from his elbow.

The line might end up being a real concern if Heyer and Wade don't get back quicly.

From an injury standpoint, fate hasn't been too kind thus far to the Skins.
