What's the latest if any news...thanks
There's no way to know.
As BB always says, we'll know when the injury report comes out.
Maroney left the lockerroom early, not sure. Vrabes is fine, just a stinger type bell rung thing.
Just got home from the game and Maroney jogged with an assistant into the lockeroom in the middle of the first quarter.
He looked ok but i guess we wont know.
Vrabel walked under his own power with Tedy into the lockeroom and just before they hit the stairs Tedy ran back out to a section of the crowd.
Thought maybe a local sports had some info. The way BB hides his injury reports guess we'll know next Sunday
The following ESPN article said Maroney just had the wind knocked out of him and BB said he will be ok.
They also have a cool Brady and a hard-hitting Dillon, who led a mediocre running attack when rookie Laurence Maroney was sidelined for the game after having the wind knocked out of him in the first quarter. Coach Bill Belichick said "he's doing all right."
What about Artrell Hawkins?
He went down in the 4th quarter and I did not notice if he returned...
yes, but this is universally considered typical BB B.S. So...we still don't know.
Didn't BB say Rodney was "all right" after the Colts game?
I'm a Colts fan, but yeah-injuries is the LAST thing I want to see.
This is why I really, really enjoyed the Dallas/NY Giants game today-pretty much everyone came out unscathed.
Something I heard throught the grapevine
He strained a muscle in between his ribs(intercostal muscle)...which hurts like a *****, but he said after the game that he's fine. They just held him out to be cautious. He said it happened right before the half.
Re: Something I heard throught the grapevine
We all know what section that is!
I'm sorry, like I said, I heard it through the grapevine, I know people hate those !! But I felt the chances were high the source was accurate, so I passed it along.
Maroney, Vrabel, Hawkins = best 3 players we've ever lost in the same game? Hopefully not lost for long....
Re: Something I heard throught the grapevine
Who does "he" refer to?
Just saw this on ESPN Scouts Inc briefing room
I couldn't see the game; WAS THIS REALLY A HELMET TO HELMET HIT?
Every other post above has said wind knocked out or something else light injury. H-H could mean concussion and holding him out of a couple of games. ( Worse yet if he is susceptible to concussions - that doesnt give him much career life expectancy as a RB. )
But as typical here there is no clear injury info in PATSLAND. (hate that as an inquiring mind; but love the consternation it gives the betters, writers etc.)
pats have a secret concussion 'remedy'...they spend the extra $$ (125 a peice) on dentist fitted mouthguards that prevent them.... half the defense wears them (including asante, rodney) they also increase ur strength ...and if your going to try to say im making this post up but these r facts...the marines are about to buy the same mouthguards for our troops...pats r the only current team to wear them...thought id throw that out there...
What? You mean you didn't hear BB say Maroney was "banged up?" What more do you want?
In BB-speak, it's gotta be less serious than a "sore leg."
I thought the Pats were the FIRST team...but that many other teams do this as well??? There was an article about this..I think last year??? I know I read it and it MAY have been talked about on here....
Half of my brother's High School football team wore them, so I doubt they are the only team in the NFL that has them.
Go to the "nfl" section, and read the short news items on the right column. They repeat the "helmet to helmet hit" phrase, and cite the Globe as mentioning "some sort of head injury."
All of this sounds way too vague to take to the bank, of course, but the only difference between injury information in Foxboro and nuclear secrets in Moscow is the former didn't go up for sale when the Berlin Wall fell.
Actually come to think of it, I never saw Bill Belichick and Andrei Gromyko photographed together. Huh.
Dickerson said he saw Maroney in the lockeroom yesterday and Maroney said he was allright.
Speaking of Belichick speak, has he listed Seau as questionable yet
No...he said the injury is a shame...because nobody worked harder than Rodney to get back (after the knee injury).
It was a big time helmet to helmet hit. Maroneys head snapped back.
As always "It's just a flesh wound"
