    RB Laurence Maroney was back at practice today for the first time since the Redskins game. He wore a brace on his left knee and ran without a limp, though he did seem to be stretching it out quite a bit. So maybe, contradictory to the earlier report, he isn’t quite on the shelf yet.

    My gut feeling is he probably misses this week, ESPN does have pretty good sources and Maroney clearly hurt the knee a little. Probably a calculated gamble that we can win this without risking further injury to Maroney.

    Makes sense BF. Buffalo and the Jets games are basically extended pre-season. I hope to see Bruschi back for the Jets game so that he has a game under his belt before facing Cincy. And of course I (we) hope the mysterious Chad Jackson shows up one of these weeks.

    I think he probably suits up, but is only inserted if needed!

    Not so fast! I expect them both to be tough games. They're hungry division opponents. We should win, but I don't think they'll be cakewalks.

    I'm not taking them lightly or assuming we'll win. But with a healthy Dillon it's a reasonable chance to keep Maroney out for a game to get him to 100% - if necessary.

    Felger is saying Nix's word is gospel.

    Hey, if the kid practices without the red jersey in full pads and contact, how can he not play...even in limited duty?

    Wouldn't Wendy Nix have a better 'inside' Red Sox source????

    Well I don't think whether or not I take them lightly will have much effect on the outcome of either of those two games. What do you think?:cool:

    Nice one mr.corso :D. Just kidding. I realize they may be hungry but I fully expect both of those teams to die of malnutrition becasue they won't be able to eat much this season.

    The Jets will outright suck, no chance they even remain in either game this season beyond the first quarter. Bills have a decent defense with Spikes coming back and the young secondary they have but that offense won't be able to move the ball. They might make a game of it on sunday but I doubt it.

    You also have to agree that those two teams (due to all of the personnel changes) will still be learning their own systems and figuring out who is playing where. So I believe that both teams will still be in an extended form of pre-season for a good portion of the season. Just my 0.02.

    If the injury was bad enough to know on Monday that he wasn't going to be playing on Sunday wouldn't he not be practicing?

    Not only that, BB would have told the media at his PC that Maroney was out of the game.

    ESPN is beginning to suck. I find out more here, on profootballtalk.com or rotoworld and of course Reiss, and some from Breer and Tomase.

    Lets assume the injury is minor and needs 3-4 weeks to heal fully...this is a player who needs all the practice time he can get, so I might inactivate him on Sunday, but practice with him this week, for all we know, he put on a red jersey after the press access ended - but now Buffalo has to factor him into their game planning.

    Bottom line, we're now in the BB zone, disinformation, misinformation, day-to-day amputees, and thinking about the entire season while focusing on the ONE game. We'll know more Wednesday, and get our answer Sunday. Myself, I'd rather have him healthy for Denver and Cincy, tough call.

    Something that concerns me about Maroney's supposed injury; as much as I like Laurence' attitude and running style, I can't think of a great RB who was injured before he ever took the field for his first game. Part of greatness is durability.

    Curtis Martin missed his whole junior year at Pitt. (That's why he fell to the third round.) Was he not a durable runner?

    What a guy. When he was on EEI he yucked it up with Smerlas and Deossie when they trashed Borges. Now he's kissing his ass? He's just trying to position himself as the anti-Ordway. Good luck. We'll see how that plays out at ratings time. Felger, Borges and Tomase all bite.

    ok so now im confused

    he might play sunday???

    and yes ppl are takin these games too lightly

    honestly i think buffalo could make a game of it

    i dont see our offense without a true number one wr and gabriel not knowing the offense all that well and brady and gabriel not knowing each other all taht well, scoring that much

    its gonna be a low scorin game, granted i think we'll win but it wont be a cakewalk

    What difference does it make? Martin was injured before he ever took the field for his first real NFL game. Did that make him injury prone?

    I guess I'm a kool aid drinking optimist but even with mediocre WR we're still plenty strong with our running game and TE. If we put up less than 24 points I'll be surprised.

    I'm guessing Maroney prob. doesn't play this week as a precaution. As others said, the rest of our roster should be enough to handle the Bills at home.

    As far as people saying fans on this board are taking the first two games too lightly, I have a small news update: It doesn't matter what we think of the games.

    Some might find this enlightening, but the games are played independent of fan thinking & input. It mostly comes down to how the coaches prepare players and how they players execute on the field, moreso than whether or not fans on messageboards dismiss & overlook an opponent. ;)

    I will go on record with or without Maroney my guess for the final score will be

    Pats - 31
    Bills - 10

    A healthy Dillon/Faulk along with Graham/Watson, Brown/Gabriel/Caldwell will be enough to put up 31 on the Bills. Gabriel doesn't need to know the entire playbook to have some impact in this game. I can't wait until he does have a good understanding of this offense because he is a good receiver.

    Note: I am being very liberal with the Bills score. I honestly think they could be held to a field goal or shutout, but I could also see them getting a garbage time touchdown.

    You don't say? People who are in the seats have an impact on the players emotions, but us who will be sitting in our recliners, not so much. But if it makes folks feel better. I tried to relay that point earlier in this thread.
