This is the last thing Jones owners (like myself...
) wanted to see. Of course, it's apparently nothing new with this guy.
Benson has looked like poop the first few games. I saw him fumble away the ball in the one carry I noticed him have last week against Cleveland. But, he's going to get the ball a lot this week since Jones probably won't play.
Judging by the Vikings run defense (last in the league in yards allowed - 178 a game!!!
and giving up over 1 TD per game on the ground), Benson could end up having a very huge day. I would start him if I had him. I don't care what he's done before with that type of matchup.
This will really bite Jones in the butt if Benson does well this week. They'll assume they've found their guy...after all, he was their top draft pick. They very well might not give the job back to TJ when he comes back.
That's assuming he DOES come back - apparently he's talking to Dr. James Andrews about his LCL injury. If you play fantasy baseball or watch a lot of baseball in general, you know that this guy is probably one of the most notable butchers in sports medicine. Everyone goes to this guy when they have arm issues, and it seems like 90% of the time he does Tommy John surgery on them.
I really don't like this...I wish I had traded TJ last week for a freaking good WR...stupid me.
