Terrence Newman's injury

On Monday, Terrence Newman left practice after he hurt his groin. Yesterday, the MRI revealed that he had a tear in the groin. Although Newman is expected to be out for 3 weeks, which means he would be ready in time for the season, it worries me that the injury was more severe than initially thought.

I (and almost everybody else) expect Adam Jones to be reinstated by Roger Goodell. But, if that doesn't happen and Newman's injury is more severe than thought now, that leaves the 'Boys with Henry and Jenkins as starting CBs to go along with Roy Williams and Ken Hamlin in the secondary.

That would make a unit that is arguably the team's strongest much weaker. So hopefully three weeks will pass and Terrence Newman will be fully recovered.
