Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)For his part, Hatcher indicated Wednesday that he will have his knee scoped and will be out 4-6 weeks, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post. Such a timetable suggests that Hatcher will be eased into training camp (which starts on July 24), but his regular season availability shouldn't be impacted by the procedure.
