This my be the first thing Raiderholic was ever right about. Guy is toast 

Unless he's been playing with a bad shoulder all season, he did sit out almost all of the preseason.  Hopefully he was.

Very disappointing.  This guy was supposed to be the rock that came in and solidified the O-line.  

Can only hope this O-line unit gets the love it's long needed, and we fans have long asked for, this next off-season.

I wonder if he is out for the season or can come back in 6 weeks or so.  He lost his starting job to Lewis, but he is still depth and unfortunately could have been traded for something.

The Rotoworld blurb says he's out for the remainder of the season.

Jets LG Kelechi Osemele (shoulder) will undergo shoulder surgery.

Backup OG Alex Lewis has performed admirably in place of Osemele, ranking as PFF's No. 5 guard among 88 qualifiers in his two spot-starts. Osemele arguably would've been stashed as a reserve in his return. He's expected to miss the remainder of the 2019 season.

Nice to have an experienced guy like Lewis available to back-up.  Not a big loss, although depth will take a hit while Osemele is unavailable.

It's got to be Lewis and Winters at OG with Compton backing up both spots now, right?

Compton and/or Harrison.  Pretty sure Harrison has played some guard.  Although I would really like to see Harrison get a shot at C in the starting lineup.

My understanding is that Harrison's value at Center is really around his consistency as a snapper and his intelligence in terms of making protection calls, etc.  His shortcoming is that he isn't the strongest, most powerful of guys.  So when it comes to OG you're really looking for stout, powerful men who can hold up against pass rushers and lead blocks for a running back.  I think that's the challenge with Harrison at OG.

 And Beachum might be out a few weeks. So we've got Lewis in at LG and Shell in at LT. This will be an interesting experiment. 

I prefer Edoga at LT and Shell at RT. Edoga has more athleticism.
