    I read a hip injury. Looked like a leg to me. Hip might be less long term but who knows?

    I hope this isn't serious. Nink is one of my favorite players on this team. Cunningham's return comes just in time. Still & all I want Nink on the field for our run & the SB.

    Hate to say it, but I can't see a guy who can't walk off the field by himself playing football within a month. Have to assume he's done.

    Never thought I would be concerned about an injury to Rob Ninkovich, but I really hope he's ready for the next game. He's developed into a valuable contributor.

    On the flip side, looks like we had some pretty good substitution with Cunningham and Scott. I'm more concerned with our secondary situation than with the front line.

    Not saying it's the same injury, but like I said in the other thread isn't the way he walked off under support kind of like how Rosey Colvin walked off in '03 when he hurt his hip and was IR'd? Wouldn't be a good sign.

    The Dline looked better without him.

    Ninko will be missed if he's done. Lets cross our fingers. He's a play maker

    Tough loss, potentially. Niko is a big part of the defense but hopefully Cunningham, Scott, and Francis can step up.

    I wonder if we will also see Jake Bequette active for the playoffs if Ninko is sidelined the rest of the year?

    Not a chance. History has shown us that if BB does not trust you in the regular season, you won't play in the playoffs.

    On the other hand, Scott and Francis looked pretty good.

    Taking your anti-Ninko lines to new and absurd heights, I see.

    But is it truly an issue of trust... or a numbers crunch as Scott, Francis, and Cunningham are ahead on the DC?

    I would think Bequette can offer some pass rush in obvious passing situations, but I think that it is most likely a redshirt year for him as there seems to be enough depth behind Ninkovich.

    Ninkovich injury a big concern

    Terrible for Nink if true. But they can win with Scott, Francis, and Cunningham.

    So strange that it is a hip injury. From the way he was walking, you might think it was a left knee injury for sure. In any case, whatever he got does not bode well. I hope it is one of those I get when I overwork myself.

    No, it didn't. The Pats changed things up and started blitzing more and basically overwhelming the Phins O-line. Also, lets not overlook the fact that they didn't have Jake Long out there at OT.

    BTW, since you haven't been paying attention, Ninkovich had 8 sacks, 5 forced fumbles and 4 fumble recoveries on the season.. That's big production the Pats may be without.

    Losing a starter and a top leader in the team's sacks department is never a good thing.

    Its time for Cunningham to show us if he has it or not .... It may be his biggest spotlight on his short career now.
