    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.

    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.

    At least it isn't steroids and hopefully not Chung too.

    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.
