Kyle Juszczyk suffered a grade 2 MCL sprain and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. The fullback, however, is optimistic about an earlier timetable ahead of the four weeks and will seek a second opinion on the severity of his injury. (Rob Lowder on Twitter)
Juszczyk holds little fantasy value directly, but his absence is likely to be felt to some degree by the running corps as the Pro Bowl fullback provides a strong blocking presence. Matt Breida's opening touchdown on Monday night was made possible by a key block Juszczyk set. As a capable receiver out of the backfield, he also adds an additional dimension that defenses need to account for so the offense as a whole will miss his presence.
