Brett Lee injury - McGrath all over again?

The news of Brett Lee's rib injury possibly ruling him out for maybe two test matches has echoes of the ankle injury suffered by Glen McGrath during the 2005 Ashes series. Given the quality and ferocity of Lee's bowling during the warm up match with the England Lions over the weekend, how much of a blow will this be to Ponting and Co and could this be the sign, as in 2005, that England never stood a better chance of regaining the Ashes against a weakened Aussie bowling side? Discuss!
