Kubiak says T Rashad Butler tore his triceps muscle tonight and will be out for the season. #HTPreseason



Hopefully we can sign someone because I DO NOT want to see Gardner as the backup. Please play well this season Newton. Pray

I liked Newton coming out. I thought that he could be a late round steal (that's why I picked him in predict the pick a few years ago) and hopefully he proves me right. But we NEED to find a veteran back up. If Newton goes down, we will be screwed.

Correct. Gotta feel sorry for him. He was in a contract year too.

I had high hopes for Butler this year. I really thought that because he played well when filling in for Brown a couple years ago, and because this was a contract year for him to show the whole NFL what he can do that he would really be on top of his game. He's played badly in preseason and now this... Just gotta feel bad for the guy and wish him the best.

So do we send him to IR or does he get a medical settlement and waived?

Newton really is the unquestioned RT now. I watched Butler go to the turf on his knees holding his arm. It looked pretty bad.

I didn't even see it, but you can't help but to feel bad for Butler. Guy was finally getting his shot amongst the starting lineup, was barely outplayed by Derek Newton (I really didn't see ANYTHING that would lend to Newton starting over Butler and vice versa) lost his starting gig but was in a position to get it back if Newton faltered, then tore his triceps muscle, ending his season - all in a contract year.

You know that Bulter is wishing he could have a re-do on this offseason.
