Probably going to look on the Free Agent market for someone as well

Names on the market: Brandon "Coke Machine" Jacobs, Willis Mcgahee, Ryan Grant, Cedric Benson,

Given our need for pass protection now who is our best option?

McGahee? Bringing Jacobs back?

If it's just a fracture and he walked off the field I'm not sure why people think it's season-ending.

I imagine the absolute best case scenario is he comes back middle to end of October?

What about someone like Michael turner. Vet min. Goal line/ short yard back. Enough experience to slip right in. 6-10 touches a game until brown ready. Hoping the no looks he has stayed in shape for this time of year.

They gave Wilson goal line reps this preseason, so they could easily give him that job. You could probably find someone better floating around, but IMO you are better off encouraging Wilson to do it and get better at it, rather than giving it away. It's pass protection which will be more important. How's Michael Cox at pass protection?

Disappointing. I really enjoy watching him play. Definitely going to have to bring in some sort of veteran who can pass block. Not sure how I would feel about a Jacobs return. McGahee would be interesting.
