    I'm more worried about guys who have been out for at least a week at this point. Richardson may be seriously injured based on reports of him being bandaged up, but Wilson and Morris may not be and being held out for precautionary reasons.

    I figured Moss would be back today. I was hoping Seymour would be on the field today too. If rumors of both being held out for precautionary reasons are true, this is around the time they should really start practicing to get ready for the Jets.

    Reiss has been mentioning that Wilson pulled up lame during the long TD by the Panthers. He said he played on the extra point attempt, but never got back in the game. Maybe he tweaked something, hopefully it wasn't anything serious and the training staff is just taking extra precautions since he has a recent history of injuries.

    Gaffney would have to be in traction, I'd bet, to keep him off the field with the squeeze at WR and the cuts coming up.

    Man,

    Real disappointed Moss is not back yet. So much for a "slight" injury. It's been how many weeks now?

    I figured if they were being overly cautious, Moss would be back today.

    Now I'm starting to think we may not see him week 1.

    Very disappointing.

    In a way, it is. But I would rather him be out to week 3, 4, 5 then come back early and re-injure

    I agree 100%.

    But I was just hoping that having him week 1 would not be considered rushing him back.

    But it looks like it may be :(

    Not concerned about Moss at all Brady and BB both commented how smart he is on the field and the film room he's such a natural athlete he can make the transition back to the field quicker then other players.
    I'm on record to say he's gonna be there in the Meadowland week 1.
    BB is just making Eric think do I have to prepare for Moss or not?
    It use to drive coordinators and coaches crazy alike.
    Since Moss proclaimed to be the player who was so dominate it's pry making the penguin wake up in hot and cold sweats, as he sees visions of Revis's confidence being crushed in one quick swoop as he's rubbing his shoulders promising him he's still the man no matter how many times he got MOSSED!

    People drink the Koolaid it's delicious and say go PATS!

    Both Reiss and Breer lists say nothing about the "real" Brady - Tom. From that can we conclude that his CA trip is over? I thought folks were saying he was going to fly back to CA right after the game and miss this week.

    Any news on this?

    Well Gaffney and Brady tie up 2 roster spots IMO, while Richardson is slated for either IR or PS. Prediction: Meriweather sees extended action at FS against NYG. Despite all the talent on the team, everyone has holes and the depth chart is looking thin at FS. Not much experience there. "Can I speak with Mr. Hawkins, please?"

    Please, no.

    Meriweather and Willie Andrews, assuming Geno's injury is serious.

    I'd sit him next week too. Who cares about a stupid exhibition game? Let him be totally healthy when the season starts. I have a feeling Tom remembers him.

    I know it's not their usual, but I bet they've installed a few "run as fast as you can and jump up in the air" plays.:rocker:

    I think that's a leap. I'm not trying to be an a** or sound like BB when I say he's probably truly "day-to-day", as in, if there were a game, he could play. But as there's not, why risk it? We know how frustrating and persistent hammy problems can be.

    I'm not and to be honest, if Moss is even hurt at all I'd be surprised. Everyone knows what Moss can do and BB needs to see as uch of Gaffney, Caldwell, Kight, etc as possible. BB has a tough decision to make at WR and seeing Moss catch balls in the preseason isn't going to do much to help him with that decision.

    hes at practice, lesson to be learned, dont listen to media speculation, pro athletes dont take weeks off or extended days because of a baby birth, a couple days yes

    That is just crazy talk, if Moss could practice then he would be on the field getting reps. I think BB is more concerned about how his franchise QB and #1 WR look than evaluating his 7th option at receiver.

    They are likely being overly careful with Moss but hamstrings are trickly. Him not being on the field can't be considered good news now matter how delusional you are.

    There is no need for the Pats to rush Moss back. I mean, I guess getting timing together with Brady, etc... but if they want to make ABSOLUTE sure that Moss's hammy is okay, fine with me. See you in the Meadowlands, Randy.

    I disagree completely here. The chemistry a QB and WR need to develop is key to a good offense. Theres no way they would keep Moss out of practice just to get a look at the other WRs. Brady and Moss need time together on the field.

    Agree no way they would keep him out if he wasnt hurt, running patterns and timing with the QB is way to important and Moss hasnt done that for weeks.

    From BB point of view we won without him last year we can do so this year lets get him 100%, why hurry him back on hammy type injury that often gets re-aggravated.

    Kyle Brady and Jabar Gaffney at practice put Garrett Mills's and

    Reche Caldwell's roster spots in jeopardy.

    I can't believe that. If Moss was going into his second or more years in our offense, I can see that. But Moss has had six days of getting acclimated to the offense and get timing with Brady.

    Gaffney, Caldwell, and Kight were on the team last year. Why would Belichick need to see as much of these three as possible? He say them in practice and game situations a lot last year. I don't think Belichick's opinions of them changed much this preseason other than Gaffney making the next step, but we didn't need to get him a ton of time.

    Besides, Stallworth was out for another week after Moss went out of camp. Gaffney has missed a week. Welker was getting a ton of reps before Moss went down.

    The Pats may be overly cautious in getting Moss back on the field, but I doubt they are holding him out without an injury. Moss is behind the game in getting up to speed with this offense and getting his timing down with Brady and will probably be limited in action early in the season. Even if he comes back tomorrow, I don't think he starts against the Jets.

    During Branch's last season, the Pats didn't have him play in the games either.

    I didn't and don't expect Moss back before next week when he'll be with the team getting ready for the game against the Jets.

    I think geno's too injury prone to count on him - and this is his contract year!! Meriweather and Willie have so much going for them and I, for one, would be happy with them as our FS along with Rodney and Sanders at SS.

    I suspect the Patriots weighed two options...

    1) the importance of Brady and Moss being totally in sync

    2) the importance of Moss being TOTALLY healed, avoiding a lingering hamstring injury


    ...and went with erring on the side of option 2. Simple as that. Would they prefer he be totally healthy AND practicing with Brady? Sure. But given the choice, they went with the second option - and I'm glad they did, especially given Moss's natural ability. He and Brady will be fine.

    Moss has had a bit more than 6 days to "get acclimated". He came to camp early. Moved his schedule around to participate in some of the off-season program. And, just because he's not there for the MEDIA portion of the practice doesn't mean he's not there. He could be in studying tape for all we know.

    Personally, until we get the injury report that says he's OUT for the Jets game, I would expect him to play.

    I was disappointed that Wilson wasn't re-converted to CB. I just don't think that he can play the more physically-demanding role of FS any longer.
