Head Coach Ron Rivera just announced that TE Gary Barnidge, who has been having a promising preseason, has broken his ankle. It was not said whether or not surgery will be performed. Rivera did say there is no ligament damage, which is a good thing for a quicker return for the only TE we kept from the 2010 campaign. Since we have stocked up on TEs in FA, this isnt a catastrophic loss, but it is very disappointing since Barnidge may be groomed to step in if we dont bring Shockey back next year after his contract expires.
