With the next game 8 months away, I wouldn't be saving anyone from injury. I would however have a heavy rotation and let some guys who haven't gotten on the field much get some quality hitting in.
An ACL tear is 12 months for the normal person. Not everyone is an absolute freak like Adrian Peterson and can rehab that injury in 7 months and come back more explosive than ever. That injury was gruesome and is still devastating.

I'm telling you, it'll be 10 - 12 before we see him again.
