The Freep is reporting that "first string" QB Nick Sheridan suffered a serious leg injury in practice yesterday.

I use the term first string loosely because Sheridan has about as much job security as the Shah of Iran did in 1979. Yes, I went there.
Anyway, even though this only leaves Forcier and a former MLB hurler who threw a perfect game on the spring roster, Denard Robinson is coming in the fall.  And let's be honest, Sheridan wasn't playing past the first half of the Western Michigan game. 
The first image that popped into my mind was of Michael taking Fredo out on the boat and shooting him in The Godfather Part II. This basically just saves Rodriguez from having another awkward conversation with Sheridan and saying he's lost his job, again. 
Does this officially begin the Year of Forcier?
