I came out of the box early with my preliminary NFL Season predictions. I’ve waited to get on to the 2nd and final version of the picks. Around this time of year, a few players get hurt and some of the injuries are significant. Cleveland Browns center (a high-profile free agent acquisition, intended to anchor the offensive line and lead the offense) LeCharles Bentley is already out for the year. Tonite, Clinton Portis, RB for the Washington Redskins was separated from his shoulder. The reunion might take a month. It’s too soon to tell. Washington, though, will be a different team without Portis.
I’ll be coming back with a second set of predictions in a couple of weeks. I want to see how things shake out with respect to injuries. By the way, I still like the Saints.
