Scott Wells Will See You Now

From the pictures on the sidelines, it looked like C Scott Wells had suffered a concussion, but instead he has a broken eye socket. I'm glad it's not a concussion which can put your career in doubt like in the case of Miami QB Trent Green, but a broken eye socket sounds really painful. He'll probably get a visor on his helmet and be good to go in a week or two.

Wells is a solid player, but so is his replacement, former starting RG Jason Spitz. He had been battling some injuries of his own, but apparently he is now healthy and just lost his place in the lineup to his replacement, RG Junius Coston. So long as QB Brett Favre has no problems with Spitz there won't be a big downgrade, if any.
