    Mini camp was notable for the excessive number of injuries:

    Jonathan Fanene -- Left knee / MRI
    Chandler Jones -- Right knee
    Dennard -- Left leg
    Wes Welker -- Right leg
    Sterling Moore -- Right knee/lower leg

    Plus these other guys left practice; not sure if they were injured
    Eric Kettani ?
    Vince Wilfork ?
    Cunningham?

    And this is just the guys we know about. And these were non-contact drills.

    I don't who's to blame but the Patriots should have had them practice on grass or the FieldTurf in Gillette instead of the their nasty turf practice fields

    3rd post on the same topic when you're completely clueless as to what actually happened as far as the 'injuries' went.

    Interesting trolling attempt, but I'm going to have to fail you for the repetitiveness.

    Welcome to the board... BUT...

    A little more punctuation would make your posts more readable. You lost me after the only period.

    Also, the large font and red text are a bit abrasive to the eye, too. If you really want to stand out, develop the content of your comments, not the color.

    Those were observations by some reporter.

    The one that does strike out to me is Chandler...didn't he have a knee issue his final year?

    A lot of conjecture & speculation here..

    Not sure the the "Field Turf" did it as they did practice outside at least one day as they did it in the rain.. unless the Dana Farber "Dome" can simulate rainy conditions...

    I was always skeptical when people said Fred was a member of the local media. I was wrong. Props to those who figured him out.

    OMG the sky is falling. This stuff happens every year. You have no idea of the severity of any of these. What evidence do you have that the practice turf had anything to do with any injuries? Do you know that the practice turf is different than the other options?

    Why does someone always have to be to blame?

    Actually yes; the dome turf is to blame. But don't take it from me--take it from the Patriots. A few days after mini camp the Patriots announced that were replacing the dome turf with Field Turf.

    Alas the drones in the press did not catch this nor did they put two and two together.

    The Patriots are to blame for not replacing the turf before the injuries not after. :mad:

    Yo Ivan ease off dude. I do not hate Tavon; he was just drafted a little earlier than he should have been. He will probably be OK.
