He showed up to practice with a mysterious boot on his right foot and could miss quite a few games apparently.

Looks like Kooistra would be the man and he isn't exactly an ironman.

If Levi is good for game one I would think Whitworth will get moved all the way over there, just because it seems Andrews is a lock to start all year at LG so I don't see them moving him to RT only to move him back to LG.

Either way, an injury like this (even though it's to one of our best players/leaders) doesn't hurt this year as much as last year because the players are actually used to the line changing up unlike they were last season. Plus Kooistra will get 3 games to prepare.

I think we'll be fine, I know this would bother some people and I really think Willie is a great player but Levi is more important. The run game could really suffer early though.

Kooistra and Whitworth can take Wille spot i think Levi is the one we need back

I think we will be fine for now

IF we get Levi back, having Levi and Andrews on the left side IMO gives us one of the best blind side blocker combos in the league.... So much mass there.

I think the passing game should be fine, I'm just concerned about the run game. Rudi always pounds that right side with Willie and Williams.

I just hope the team is healthy for the second half. Our last 8 games are up there with the easiest in the league... Hopefully we can steamroll into the playoffs.
