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)

Fantasy Impact:

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.
