Re: Despite injuries, we'll be fine.
I'm more concerned about the defensive line than anything else. We were doing OK with Mendenhall sitting on the bench, and he didn't do much against Baltimore anyway. The offensive line finally seemed to get its shit together when Stapleton came in, so maybe changing things up there with him or Essex will be a positive thing. They certainly can't do any worse.
But the defensive line ... yeah, they did a decent job hanging in there on Monday, but by the end they were tired and getting shoved around. Having any extra depth there would be helpful; needless to say, gaining two of our starters back would be huge.
