Yesterday I reported that backup center David Snow had a foot injury, and left practice with his foot in a boot. Coach Tomlin addressed the media after practice today and revealed that Snow’s foot is broken and will require surgery. This is a tough blow for Snow obviously, and while I don’t know the specifics about the severity of his injury yet, foot surgery doesn’t mean his season is over.
Depending on the type and severity of the fracture, you could be looking at a 12 week recovery window. Of course, it could be much longer. We’ll have to wait for more information to become available.
Every training camp injury creates an opportunity for another player to show their stuff. With Snow sidelined for the rest of camp, opportunity arises for younger lineman like Wesley Johnson and Chris Elkins to earn a spot on the 53 man roster.
