Bobby Engram to Miss 6-8 Weeks
Wide receiver Bobby Engram, the Seahawks leading receiver in 2007, suffered a cracked bone in his shoulder on the first of his two receptions Friday night and is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks.
Head coach Mike Holmgren said the worst-case scenario would have Engram returning after the Seahawks' bye in Week 4, with the best-case scenario having Engram return before the bye.
Holmgren added that with Engram out, "the young'uns have to step up and play".
The "young'uns" Holmgren referred to are wide receivers Courtney Taylor, Ben Obomanu, Jordan Kent, Logan Payne and Michael Bumpus. With Deion Branch on the PUP list as he recovers from a torn ACL (the Seahawks are optimistic Branch can return for the regular season opener), two or three members of this quintet were expected to step up and produce in 2008.
Now that Engram could miss the first month of the regular season, including divisional games against San Francisco and St. Louis, there's a greater urgency for them to do so.
