    May be the first time I've seen the opposing team with a longer injury report than the Pats. :D

    Hopefully getting Bolden and Jones back for this one. Big boost.

    I wouldn't mind letting Mankins take a few more weeks to heal up, but it's a great sign that he's practicing means he should definitely be good to go for the playoffs barring another injury.

    That can't be right.

    What about 'Tom Brady QB Shoulder Probable'? :D

    Interesting the McDonald didn't practice today. It could mean that this week we will see something that we've all been waiting for for the last 2 years. That is having Marcus Cannon playing RG, and if Volmer can go, we will have the true road grader right side that we've all dreamed of.

    Getting Jones and Bolden back would be great, if just to knock some rust off.

    Would love to see that Cannon/Vollmer combo in the run game. Add in Gronk when he returns and the Pats should really be balanced.

    From what I read, Bolden wont be added to the roster until Tuesday.

    The Pats have a 1 week exemption where hes allowed to practice.

    The 1 week exemption does not prevent them from activating him earlier. If he is activated for game day, his exemption expires (and the Pats would have to cut someone to make room for him). That's what happened with Aqib Talib earlier this year. So if you're basing your statement purely on the fact that his exemption is for 1 week, I don't think it means much. Since he wasn't on the injury report, it seems unlikely that they wouldn't activate him.

    Whether or not he is activated, I suspect that the Pats are using Bolden in practice this week to simulate and prepare for Arian Foster, much as they used Vereen and Woodhead last week to prepare for Reggie Bush. That alone could be tremendously valuable to them. But I also think that having a fresh 1-2 punch of Bolden and Ridley would be very valuable for the Texans' and 49ers' games, if he is healthy enough to go.

    Tough to get reps in the backfield these days with Vereen coming on but Bolden is also one of our better ST guys so I would expect to be activated on that basis alone.

    Jesus. Vollmer is a walking train wreck.

    I understand that.

    I see no reason to activate Bolden on Monday and carry him, Ridely, Woody and Vereen on MNF when 2 of the 3 usually dont get enough carries as it is. Surely, the 3 RBs that havent been out 4 weeks are ahead of Bolden and up to speed in practice and deserve more playing time.

    Furthermore, Houstons pass D is ranked 19th. Their secondary is banged up to where they just signed Stanford Routt. The Houston LBs arent known for coverage either. Id like to see more of Vereen and Woody matched up with them in the pass game.

    The Patriots get a one-week roster exemption for Bolden coming off his suspension. They may use that to carry an extra offensive lineman for depth.

    Personally, I'd like to see Bolden in there as a battering ram to pound the ball at JJ Watt and exhaust him by the 4th quarter.

    Houston has been run on the fewest times of any team in the NFL - an average of just over 21 times per game, 253 times on the year. That's why they are giving up the 2nd fewest rushing yards per game. Not because they are particualrly good against the run - they are giving up an average of 4.1 YPC, which is tied for 10th with 5 other teams, and which is below 3.9 YPC allowed by the Pats' D. The Pats' RBBC are averaging 4.2 YPC, so I don't see why the Pats shouldn't be able to run agianst Houston.

    No one has really tested JJ Watt this year. Jon Gruden called Watt's stamina incredible, but no one has really tried to wear him down. Nothing else has worked very well against him.

    I'd love to see the Pats go with Connolly at center and go big on the right side at guard with Marcus Cannon next to Sebastian Vollmer, and then use a healthy dose of Ridley and Bolden running right at Watt. Wear him down. Beat him up physically. I wonder if he'll still be jumping in the air batting balls down in the 4th quarter if a team goes at him like that. No one has so far. Bolden and Ridley would allow the Pats to rotate 2 fresh big backs who could do take a physical toll.

    I know that's not the conventional "spread it out" wisdom. But I think it would be a good way to go.

    True. I just hope Bolden is up for the game. Oh, wait...

    I read somewhere that Cannon played guard for two plays last week.
