A rib injury doesn't sound fun to deal with either

i'm dealing with a fractured rib right now, I've told to prepare for a month of agony. Two weeks in and that's how I would describe it. How these guys play through these injuries is amazing

Time for Samia to take the job and don't give it back.

About time. I know that under Zimmer they’ve had a reluctance to chance the OL during the season. Sometimes injuries open the door for opportunity, let’s hope Samia produces and doesn’t give the job back.

Hopefully it's not fractured but yeah I couldn't imagine.  Does it hurt when you laugh?

my concern is that it didn't sound like Samia was ready to take the starting job.  Not much would have changed in 1 week.  Hopefully he can I'm improve Drastically with some game reps

O'Neil probably will still be on the bench if wasn't for an injury. Change could be a good thing.

How crazy would it be if Samia or whoever plays like trash and we are all extra sad Elflein got hurt

It is a concern. I didn't want Elflein in the starting lineup but I also certainly never saw Samia as a viable replacement. I was just hoping that Samia would look good enough to be active as a backup. The new game day roster rules helped get him on the game day active roster. This week we can expect Cleveland to be added to the list of active offensive lineman; it effectively doesn't cost a team a spot on the game day roster to activate an 8th offensive lineman. Hopefully Samia steps up and proves that he is worth considering as a starter going forward.
