According to a source, tight end Brandon Bostick will not play in the opener at Seattle due to a leg injury suffered against St. Louis last Saturday. Coach Mike McCarthy stated on Monday that Bostick would be out for “a couple of weeks,” but I was told this injury will keep the former college wide receiver sidelined for 3 to 6 weeks. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find out exactly what’s wrong with the leg.
Bostick underwent minor foot surgery late last year. He reported to the June minicamp out of shape, but he was rounding into form at the time of the injury. Andrew Quarless and third-round pick Richard Rodgers will likely see the bulk of the snaps at tight end while Bostick is out.
