I said the same thing in another thread yesterday. I'm more worried about how this impacts FO's ability to properly evaluate him than I am the impact on this particular season. I'm no doctor but this injury sounds like the type that could linger and/or suffer setbacks. So in a sense this could be yet another "lost season" for Jake and his development. Did he show enough through 3.5 games to prove that he's our franchise guy? Some might say yes but I say that's too small of a sample size. And even if he comes back for 3-5 games and plays poorly he's got the built-in excuse of "well, he's coming off an injury/he's rusty" (not saying it's not a legitimate excuse). I was really looking forward to seeing Jake play a full 16 games and show us once and for all whether or not he's the guy. Now, it's looking like we could possibly be heading into his 4th season and still not know. Sucks.
