BREAKING NEWS: Scheffler Injured

According to the Denver Post, Denver Broncos Tight End Tony Scheffler is injured.

Injuries 2, Broncos 0... Three days after Running Back Travis Henry wasn't able to participate in the Broncos Quarterback Camp fans receive word that Tony Scheffler is injured as well. Mike Klis at DP reports:
"Two NFL sources said Scheffler is wearing a boot on his foot and will be out four weeks after experiencing recurring soreness in the foot he broke during last year's passing camp."
Scheffler did participate in the first day, but has not been on the field since. Early reports say that he will be out at least four weeks.

Scheffler's injury exposes a couple of things, the most glaring is that the Broncos do not have depth behind Scheffler, even with Scheffler being the number two in Denver. Nate Jackson was able to score last season and was resigned, but is he better than other Tight Ends that are/were available? Is money spent better somewhere else? Or is it imperative to have 12 Wide Receivers, 5 Running Backs and 4 Full Backs going into Training Camp- to match up with the 3 Tight Ends?
