We all know about Dan Mason's injury and if you saw it, you know that it's no big surprise that he's still injured.

ESPN's Brian Bennett got a brief status update from head coach Todd Graham about Mason's injury and had it buried a bit in one of his recent posts.

Mason had a rough year last season that started with a demotion for his role as a passenger in an alleged hit and run involving Jason Douglas. Then came, of course, the gruesome leg injury.

At the time, there was optimism by Dave Wannstedt about a full recovery. But since then, pieces of information have come far and few between.

Bennett talked to Graham and, well, not much has changed and Mason is still hurting:

Linebacker Dan Mason, who dislocated his knee in last year's Miami game, won't be back for the spring either. Graham called his injury a "month-to-month" thing.

Month to month obviously makes it sound like a longer term thing. I've got no insight on the injury, so take this with a grain of salt. But hearing that (along with not hearing any optimism from Graham) makes it sound to me like Mason is out for most of this year, too - if not more. Again, I'm not basing that on anything other than my own, clueless opinions, but the fact that we haven't heard any kind of a timetable from Graham (who, admittedly, is still new to the job) doesn't sound good.
