    If Light can't go this Sunday, Buffalo will likely "bring the kitchen sink" at Brady to start the game as Miami did.

    He's out this week. That was part of the announcement.

    Buffalo's sink is far less intimidating than Miami's.

    I haven't read anything about Light being out?

    I'm relieved that it's "only" an MCL injury but if hes out any near as long as Spikes that is not a good thing at all.

    "Hopes" sounds bad to me. Starting to remind me of how thin the DL was last year during the playoffs. I'm in 50% panic mode now.

    Do you think he'll be back by the Super Bowl? :cool:

    But I think Mayo has actually twice in his career come back from this injury in 3 weeks.

    And I wouldnt compare Mankins to Spikes, if Mankins can walk, he'll be back as soon as he can.

    You seem unusually pessimistic about our injury situation this year, I mean what with giving up on Chung and all. We must remember years past and their longstanding ability to overcome injuries, much as they have been doing this year. At least a few of Chung, Spikes, BJGE, Vollmer, Mankins and Light are bound to return to NFL-ready if not good health. Heck, they've got about another month until the AFC championship, right?

    Yep, I'm not worried in the least. I'd guess that there's a less than 1% chance he's not out there for the Pats' first playoff game.

    Well, if Light and Volmer can come back this week it will give me a chance to see happen something I've been touting for more than half a decade. You put Volmer back at RT, move Solder to LT, and move Light down to LG and see how that looks.

    BB is on record as saying that they tried Light at G and it didn't work out.

    Yes, I guess I have been. Injuries always freak me out.

    But that's also 50% not panic.
