Offensive tackles Todd Wade and Stephon Heyer both could miss two weeks with injuries sustained Sunday against Indianapolis. Wade has a high right ankle sprain, and Heyer has a “minor medial collateral stretch,” Zorn said.
“I don’t think it’s too bad, [but ankle sprains are] always a tricky injury,” Wade said. “It’s unfortunate. It is what it is. It’s something I can’t worry about. I learned my lesson before in trying to force the issue.”
Wade struggled with a shoulder injury during camp last season. Third-round pick Chad Rinehart, who played left tackle at Northern Iowa but has shifted between guard and tackle during camp, is expected to see more action in place of Heyer with the second unit.
