    From KFFL regarding Griese's toe injury....

    Let's keep our fingers crossed that it's nothing serious.


    Dolphins | Griese Injured - from www.KFFL.com
    Sat, 23 Aug 2003 09:23:34 -0700

    The Associated Press reports Miami Dolphins QB Brian Griese (toe) suffered a sprained toe during the pre-season game against the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug. 22 and did not return to the game. The injury is not expected to be serious.

    Shouldn't be a big deal. Its not like he's a WR or RB he really doesn't have to have great mobilty. He looked pretty good last night.

    Yes let's hope so...
    With the state of the OL we may need all 3 QB's this year.
    Griese needs to be in that last Preseaon game. He missed unbelievably valuable time against the Coons. Every snap is crucial for a QB trying to learn a new system.

    Just heard on ESPN that he has ligament damage and will miss atleast the last preseason game and might be out for an "extended period of time"

    Griese Injury Update; Out Indefinitely...

    As seen on FinHeaven.com

    While this is very bad news for Griese himself; the way I see it, this makes Sage the 2nd stringer, and he was a better quarterback anyways. Not too sound mean or anything...

    Re: Griese out indefinitely with toe injury

    Wow... it will be very interesting if Fiedler goes down

    However I am really not surprised that Griese got hurt.

    Wow...

    I can not believe how unlucky the Fins keep getting. How many people now are or have been injured thus far in the season? After the reading the article, I also couldn't believe that Griese also had missed games due to head, shoulder, and knee injuries in his career. This might have been considered a sign of an injury-prone player.

    GO FINS

    I'm not suprised. Not because Griese is injured. I'm just not suprised that there was ligament damage. After he said he "felt a pop", I assumed the worst. Nobody ever "feels a pop" without something snapping.

    Man, I was just starting to accept Griese on our team, I actually thought he started last night off pretty good. I have confidence in Sage, but the young has just not seem as many games as BG, here's to Jay not going down any time soon. Then again, this maybe our chance to test my theory that Sage maybe the next Tom Brady. But it's a 2 game turnaround before he starts looking like it. Hopefully we're in good position if he has to come in.

    Out indefinately...great. I am chalking this up to a curse. The Curse of the Great Marino (nice takeoff eh?) I see that we can't keep a quarterback healthy or have a viable backup from season to season and it just frustrates me to all hell. I like Sage and thought he did good last night. However, that was against second and third stringers if not worse. He looked like a deer in headlights last season when he had to play against the first team defenses. Here is hoping Fiedler stys healthy and Griese returns quickly, although I won't hold my breath.

    hmmmm, perhaps he's just taking after his old man, and will be ready in time for the superbowl where Jay suffers an injury and he comes in and leads us to victory.

    yeah yeah, its BS I know, but we all could use a little chuckle right now.

    I will never be happy of any injury to any player. I cannot believe people think of it as a good thing sometimes.
