    That's to bad, BUT that opens the door for one of the Jackson's to be activated. They have been practicing for the last three weeks.

    Begs the question, who gets the roster spot...one of the Jacksons?

    Probably would be a good idea to sign an RB to the practice squad. It's no lock Maroney stays healthy.

    This is why I was hoping they replaced Heath Evans with a legit RB3 who can be trusted to carry the load. :(

    #39 needs to stay healthy now but I feel ok with Faulk and Evans back there still. Much rather have Morris but what can you do.

    For some reason, I'm really not that worried about Maroney. If we need a back, the Pats will find one. After seeing how easily Maroney, Faulk and even Evans ran through that defense last week, I'm really not worried about this. This offense has to many weapons. We will get by. It will not surprise me if Alexander ends up on IR too.

    In the grand scheme of things, I'm bothered a lot less by this than I was by what happened to D. Thomas--there it seems like the Pats lost him for the season because they tried to activate him too early--and what happened to C. Jackson last year.

    I agree with that. It would have been better if they had put him on PUP. It would have given him more time to heal, IMO.

    Damn! That was one of the 2 places where the pats has no quality depth! Gotta sign a vet or begs Cory to suit up one more time. What is Antoine Smith doing these days?

    I heard a report that Corey would suit up for only one team. Otherwise he is not coming back.

    Not only one team, but only one game. He said he'd re-sign with the Pats if they called him the week before the Superbowl and said they needed a goal-line back. Looks like we need a few more weeks before we call him!

    Seriously, what a bummer, both for us and for Morris. He was having the best year of his career out there. Who're we gonna get now?

    Umm . . . last I checked, the Pats O hung 28 on the Cowboys in the second half without Morris or Maroney (or Watson). Somehow, I think they'll figure something out. :)

    My guess is that it just means more carries for Eckel/Evans. :) / :bricks:

    Looks like one of the Jackson will probably be activated for this weeks game. Chad please!

    I would assume we'll activate E. Jackson this week as he can play ST then consider signing a RB - I love Maroney and Faulk but with 11 games to be played we'll probably need one more guy.
