    Re: Mike Wright to the IR

    I'm guessing, then, that we've seen the last of Mike Wright in football. :(

    As much as I liked seeing him on the field, the rest of his life is far more important.

    I'm not that surprised, but I'm a little concerned about his health going forward. When he came back to practice, things must have taken a turn for the worse. :(

    Re: Mike Wright to the IR

    That actually surprises me. I thought they'd send him to IR after week 6 and activate either Brace or Deaderick in his place.

    Re: Mike Wright to the IR

    Really sucks to lose Mike Wright and Myron Pryor. I had high hopes about our interior pass rush with those guys at the beginning of the year. Real shame.

    Even bigger shame is this might be it for Mike Wright's playing career. I wish him well, but he seems to be very susceptible to head injuries. Can't take that lightly.

    Eh.

    Thank God for Brace and Deaderick coming back. Best of luck to Mr. Wright and I wish him good health.

    What a shame, and as others have indicated, his career is likely over.
    Great talent too, one of the better interior pass rushers on this team.

    Re: Mike Wright to the IR

    Why use up a roster spot this week if they know he's out for the year? Here's hoping Brace can be the disruptive player he was in college in the 4-3. Losing Wright, Pryor and having a hobbled Haynesworth has sapped the energy from what looked like a formidable pass rush early on.

    Neither Brace nor Deaderick replaces Wright. Wish him a full recovery.

    Shame, was hoping he was better when he returned to practice last week. Probably best he retires.

    TY for your service Soldier. Your health is priority and the NFL is a business and we r already wasting an empty spot on a third string QB

    Re: Mike Wright to the IR

    That may happen. The Adams move is all about THIS week's game. Typical Belichick.

    Best of health Mike! Your pass rush intensity will be missed. Enjoy the beautiful fall in NE.

    Re: Mike Wright to the IR

    Agreed, but they are at least capable bodies for depth. And Brace could shine in the 4-3.

    Too bad. He has turned into a pretty good pass rusher. I wish him all the best.

    Re: Mike Wright to the IR

    Well I wish two things:

    1. That his health for the rest of his time is good
    2. He is not on the patriots roster next year...for all those glass lovers he is the prime example last two seasons

    A little off topic but what's the deal with Brace? I feel like every time I hear about him he's injured. What gives?

    Re: Mike Wright to the IR

    Not a surprise, but disappointing nonetheless, for the team and for Mike Wright.

    He was probably one of our two best interior rushers, and unless Haynesworth decides to show his former self, we won't be able to completely replace that production.

    He was still recovering from that elbow injury he had late last season. He's hopefully healthy by now.
