Limas Sweed is out for the year

New, 16 comments

Season -ending wrist surgery.

We just lost our only deep threat at the receiver position, but Colt McCoy's arm wasn't strong to begin with. Will defenses even need to play Cover 2 against us now?

"I’ve aggravated it a couple of times and again last week and have probably been in more pain than I let anybody know," Sweed said. "I spent most of the afternoon on Monday with the doctors and training staff and they said that I should go ahead and have surgery to get it taken care of, so I’m going to take their advice.

"I’m disappointed I won’t be out there playing but I’ll be around cheering on the guys and doing everything I can to help the team. I appreciate all of the support I’ve had from the coaches, doctors, trainers and all of my teammates and look forward to getting myself healthy, hopefully, for a future in the NFL."

DE Aaron Lewis fractured his elbow against the Sooners and is out indefinitely.
