Colin Cowherd: “With that same injury old Drew Brees was out five weeks. If you remember, the Saints went 5-0 with Teddy Bridegwater… If you look at the schedule, they’re going to get their ears boxed in by the Bengals but then they get the Giants and Washington, and Dak could be back by the Rams [Week 5] or Eagles [Week 6] game, you’re fine. ‘THE SKY IS FALLING!’ I got news for you – Dallas’ sky wasn’t very high to begin with, there’s not much of a fall. This was a football team that got worse everywhere; at weapons, o-line, pass rush, coach… There is no reason to panic, you’re not getting Garoppolo, I said it yesterday. Whenever I heard 6-8 weeks with a pro athlete, to me it’s 5-6 weeks, sometimes sooner. Dak is a big, strong, young guy, he’s going to heal really quickly, it’s all going to be okay.” (Full Segment Above)
