Coach Tom Cable was short on details, but said left guard Robert Gallery “needed a repair done” on his back and is out for the season.
Cable said the injury was not career theatening. Chris Morris will start at left guard with Samson Satele, who took most of the reps with a calf injury, scheduled to start at center.
This is a serious blow to the offensive line. Although Langston Walker filled in for Gallery and was able to hold his own, Robert Gallery is the cornerstone of our Offensive Line.
Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) was held out of practice Thursday.
DHB will have to practice Friday if he's going to play this week. We wouldn't count on it happening. Oakland is better off with Louis Murphy starting next to Chaz Schilens anyway.
I wonder if Chaz or Cable stepped on his foot last week?
