    I believe the collarbone may be a season ender, no?

    If we go ahead with Maroney, Faulk, Evans and Eckel, so be it.

    Please don't guess. It leads to a lot of bad information.

    it could be a bruised sternum. The good thing is that if Maroney was that close to playing he'll definately be ready to go next week IMO.

    If it's a collar bone, that means he's done for the year. Same injury Matt Leinart had. If that happens, I expect Seymour is activated early and we finish the season with a Maroney-Faulk-Evans-Eckel combination.

    Maybe the OP is correct but what's the point in guessing ?

    Re: im guessing: morris has broken collar bone or rib

    Collar bone injuries friggin hurt. If they hadn't cut to commercial so friggin quickly when Morris down, I think we'd have a better gauge of the pain induced, and therefore a better idea of the injury. For now, it's all conjecture...

    that would be too bad about Sammy. Did Watson come back in?

    No but he looked like he was walking OK when he went off. Next week isn't a big deal but I would think Watson will be fine in two weeks.

    Given that it's the Pats, that's not beyond the realm of possibility.

    If Morris is out for a long time (which I doubt), it could happen - supposedly he's in good shape and I wouldn't be surprised if he wouldn't mind being a part of this; he sees what's going on here.

    Re: im guessing: morris has broken collar bone or rib

    It looked as though they were testing his collar bone before they cut to commercial and that was the first thing I thought he injured when I saw the replay, hopefully it isn't that and it's only a bruised sternum.

    WBOS reported that he was seen walking to the team bus with his left arm in an air cast. Often an air cast is used as a temporary holding action for a break before any surgery to affix a broken bone. Glad we have Ek.

    Re: im guessing: morris has broken collar bone or rib

    Ouch. That could be a tough IR call, a broken bone could easily be healed by playoff time but Belichick is often quick to call it quits on players like that and IR them. With our lack of injuries right now I think he'll carry Morris if he's out for an extended time but could be back later - but if we start to need to pick up injury replacements that could change.

    hope you're wrong about the collar bone, as that's all she wrote for the season if its broken...this is important as maroney has yet to show that we can depend on him for more than a few games at at time

    Hoping Morris is ok, of course, but...

    During the Tampa Bay game the announcers mentioned that a couple of teams have been dangling spare RBs to Tampa for a mid-round pick. Mewelde Moore is one name I've heard a lot.

    Re: im guessing: morris has broken collar bone or rib

    Wouldn't that mean a break in his arm/shoulder not collarbone? If he has a simular break to Rodney's last year then he can come back before the playoffs, depending on the bones an arm break could allow him to return this season. Don't know man but I'm glad NE's got Maroney who I believe will play next week. As someone else mentioned I'd also think about giving Dillon a call, if this injury to Morris turns out to be serious. Really, it looked to be something that could have been somewhat bad while they were attending to him, and when he got up he didn't move his arm.

    Re: im guessing: morris has broken collar bone or rib

    I don't know, Dillon seemed to leave in a cloud of bitterness. I'm not sure he's the kind of guy who'd take kindly to feeling like an afterthought.

    Who knows what kind of shape Dillon is in.

    BF is probably right. You keep him on the 53 as long as possible and hope more injuries don't pile up with the goal of getting him healthy for the playoffs. Wouldn't shock me to see them sign an RB to the practice squad given Maroney's own injury issues.

    Also, Eckel is a FB and a huge dropoff from Morris when it comes to talent.

    Seriously, I am sure everyone loves this Eckel kid, it's a great story - Navy guy and all that, but that's not really going to cut it on the depth chart if Morris is out for some time, particularly with Maroney banged up.

    I know Dillon reportedly wasn't too happy at the end of last season, but I still wouldn't mind seeing if he's interested in the worst case scenario that Morris is out for a while.

    Hold your laughs folks, but what would it take to get Tiki Barber out of retirement? I know, I know....lol!


    Are there any other good/decent RB's available?

    Incidently, I'm surprised someone hasn't said Morris is "made of glass" yet, seems that's been the thing to do any time someone gets injured lately...

    Re: im guessing: morris has broken collar bone or rib

    Tampa tried to have him come in to talk to them a few weeks ago and he wasn't interested in even visiting. I realize that the Pats are more attractive and he'd be comfortable in the situation (from a familiarity standpoint), but it sounds like he is committed to hanging it up.

    Re: im guessing: morris has broken collar bone or rib

    That blows. And I seriously doubt it's a bruised ANYTHING considering he was STILL on the field after the commercial break. Damn.
