Adam Shefter, a guy I find really annoying for some reason, is reporting on MNF that Benson may be done for the year. As brother Steve worried, it is in fact a Lisfranc injury and they say he’ll be out for at least 8 weeks, possibly the rest of the year. (Odd Benson got the Lisfranc injury considering it is an injury that is so 2 years ago – like the sports hernia was 5 years ago.) Not good news. Yes Starks is coming back now and that will help a bit and I’m guessing he’ll leap over Alex Green on the depth chart. I do think Starks will be good…and hungry. But losing Benson really hurts. He worked his tail off for this team and added a dimension that I thought could really take this team to a more consistent level offensively – because he brought balance. But what he did more than anything was get those 3-4 yards EVERY time. He never lost yards it seemed and he often made 2nd downs and 3rd downs much more manageable yardage-wise for Rodgers.
You know TT is busy looking at options right now. We’re going to need some help this year.
