Both 1st Round Picks Out - What's Next?

Glenn Dorsey and Branden Albert are going to be absent for our first pre-season action against the Chicago Bears, Albert perhaps the entire pre-season.

Can Dorsey come back and continue to develop?  Many have said they are less worried about him getting to camp on time and practicing injury-free than Albert. 

If Branden Albert misses camp will it give him a mulligan his first NFL season?  Albert will get a chance to play regardless of exactly when he comes back from the injury.  However, his chances of having an effective year are going down the drain quickly.

Bob Gretz argues Dorsey and Albert's spot can be filled with guys that are under the "do your job" mindset.

I disagree - it's important not to start off a season negatively like this.  Especially with younger players it can affect their morale much more.

What do you think - will these injuries be forgotten come November?  Or will it start the season with a cloud causing a rippling effect the next 17 weeks?

Updates of the AM practice today will be posted this afternoon.
