    I guess this is why he was not practicing, I can only hope that the same is not true for Chung!

    This hurts

    That's quite frustrating. He's not a player we can really afford to lose, while he's far from perfect, he's had a big impact on our run defense this year.

    Merge and change title.

    Rapp says specifically its NOT steroids. But what difference does it make - 4 games is 4 games. It sucks either way.

    Wonder what it was, (im sure will find out) If he knowingly took something or not. Anyways this is bad news.

    Stupid, stupid move. I hope the rest of his Flordia boys weren't doing the same.

    The only positive I can see coming of this is that Fletcher might be able to this into more playing time, and more playing time into proving he has potential.

    Spikes played about a dozen or so snaps the other night...not sure how anyone could tie a 45-3 victory to that.

    Not the hugest of losses but sucks nonetheless. Would be nice to still have McKenzie on the PS. Oh well.

    Look at the bright side: At least we know he won't hit the rookie wall in the playoffs. ;)

    This sucks, Spikes is a huge part of the interior run game, which going into a game against the bears who is a huge running team is definitely going to hurt us.

    A banned subtance doesnt have to be steroids or any kind of PED (infact it was said that it wasent a steroid) it can be anything from weed to cocaine to too much cough syrup.

    Pat chung was also missing from practice yesterday, if something similor happened with him.....well.......****.

    And who cares what others say anyway. Any Patriots fan should have tuned that crap out a long, long time ago.
