Lofa Back Week 1

by: Michael Steffes

Holmgren says that Lofa will be back in time to start the season, according to Danny O'Neil. Also, Charlie Frye is fine, he would be available to play on Friday if they really needed him, but instead Seneca and Dalton Bell will be manning the team.

Hasselbeck didn't practice, so the next time we see him will be in Western NY.

The reports on Tyler Schmitt are not as good. It seems his injury could be career threatening. Holmgren might be being vague on purpose. It is possible that the team just felt he would benefit greatly from a year off, bulking up, and wanted to make sure they retained him. Also, a back injury that didn't exist in April, and the team thought they could treat a week ago, turned out to be career threatening. We shall see. ~END~
