Just if you look at the FA RB class, and our T/IOL needs that are likely going to be massive with a poor IOL FA class....I dunno. The Javonte injury is so crushing on many fronts - not just this year, but in future planning (and the reality is even if he's still going to be OK and return to his former self - he can return to play much of 2023, but he won't be elite-skill Javonte until 2024. Maybe with his punishing style, we won't see a big diff, but still stings 6+ weeks later). He's never going to be the same running back. If he is, it would certainly be against the odds. His knee is basically shredded, so even if he does come back strong, his explosion is going to take a hit and I did see some statistic suggesting that players with that type of injury rarely come back to previous form. I don't think we can afford to take a RB ahead of some other positions, but if we view the run game as critical to the success of the offense, a RB along with OL is going to need to be a focal point of the offseason, with or without Javonte coming back healthy IMO. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
