None of this is adjusted for opponent, of course. Offense looks better than you might think, too. Hasselbeck, Jones, Spencer, Branch, Mebane, Tatupu, all have a good probability of returning before the bye. Trufant, Hill, Locklear, Wilson and Griffith realistically could return the for the Dallas game.
We should expect more injuries to come. For this many guys, it's far more likely that at least one will be bothered, ineffective, the rest of the way, or take 4 or 5 weeks longer to return than the timeframes we want to believe in. But they're not on IR. We weren't going 16-0 anyway. The health of this team might look dramatically better by this time next week as we prepare for a game that will be a lot easier to accept a loss from. Let's just focus on the Bears. We haven't lost yet, and we can still win this.
