    So, Kelly went down with some sort of knee injury, tried to come back and then was out for the rest of the game.. I haven't heard/seen anything on his injury today. Anyone else?

    I've been searching also, and all I have so far is this:

    Upon Further Review: New England Patriots Week 5 - ESPN Boston

    ".....The veteran defensive tackle left Sunday's game with a right knee injury in the fourth quarter and didn't return. Kelly said after the game that "everything was good" with the knee, and he wasn't walking with a limp or with the aid of crutches, although it's still a bit unclear what that means."

    Another case of “no news is good news”. Like with Dobson after the hit he suffered in ATL, I think we dodged one here too.

    They wouldn't have put him out there if they thought he could do more damage to it...at least I hope not. The trainers can pretty much make an accurate diagnosis depending on range of motion. My guess is he sprained a ligament and could be out a couple of weeks.

    I know all the talk about has been about his knee but I thought the coverage yesterday said he was getting his ankle taped?

    I don't know what the coverage said, but during the game you quite clearly saw him grabbing his knee when he went down.

    Sounds like it might not be that serious, as Kelly said after the game he would speak more later in the week. If the coaches thought it was serious, they almost always seclude an injured player from talking to the media.

    Mayo and Chung both gave thumbs up responses when asked about their knee injuries in 2010 and 2011, and both ended up missing at least three games.

    In the NFL, particularly when talking about knees, only a month off is good news. I'm expecting more of the same.

    I hope he isn't lost for the season...this looked close to what happened to Welker, maybe a bit less extreme.

    I just hope he comes back in time to get ready for the PO (yes, I'm already counting on reaching them).

    They didn't give a good view of the second time he went down, so it could've been something other than the knee.

    It was his knee. The replay made it apparent and the giant knee brace solidified it.

    Heard on ESPN that his knee cap is shattered. When asked, Thomas Gill said that Kelly is probable for next week. ;)

    Don't be too sure. When did it become apparent Ridley had a knee injury? I didn't hear anything about it 'til he started missing practice.

    Get the replay of Belichick on WEEI. I hear he spent a good 20 minutes talking about Kelly's status including reviewing the MRIs with Holley and Salk.

    Actually, we heard the opposite. Reports were Ridley's injury wasn't serious and not a big deal. It ended up to be serious enough for him to miss an entire week of practice and a game.

    Yeah, the reports I heard about Ridley were that it actually wasn't his knee in the traditional "knee injury" sense, but more of his lower thigh.

    Supposedly, it was a lower thigh/very top of the knee bruise which started to flare up during the beginning of practice on Wednesday so they treated him during the Wed practice session. It's quite possible that the doctors and trainers felt that a couple/few days rest were his best option, or even exactly what he needed.

    I didn't get the sense that it would be something that would keep him out more than a week, maybe two at the very most. We'll have to hope that this is all there is to it.

    You may be thinking of Dennard, SBB.

    I know that Dennard missed a handful of plays there at one point getting attention to his ankle, which included a re-taping. It was reported in at least one or two sources.

    Of course it's always possible that Kelly was getting his ankle re-taped too, although that may be more precautionary and routine as opposed to Dennard's case.

    This what I heard as well. I'm pretty certain he'll be back right quickly, though I'm not as worried with the good results we've had from Blount and Bolden so far.

    The key is still winning the division in order to get into the playoffs. Yeah, I'd like a higher seed, but I'd rather have the Patriots guaranteed a playoff slot and get ALL the players back and healthy than to have a higher seed and maybe still be hobbled due to injuries.

    I think we dodged a bullet with Kelly. The Dennard injury bears watching though, as he was injured the previous week and re-injured in Cinnci. I would not be surprised if he is again "limited". With NO coming, we will need all the pass defenders we have.

    Word is he's recovering from the shock of finding out he's not actually Irish

    Just started laughing when I read this thinking of BB getting asked an injury related question and going into detail.

    Reporter: What's the status on Kelly?
    BB: He had an MRI on his knee done today. Mild sprain. Will probably be limited in practice this week but it's 50/50 if he'll play on Sunday. Should get better with rest but we expect him back to full strength in about two weeks.
    Reporter: ....(silence)

    I don't know anything about Tommy Kelly aside from the fact that he missed practice today and they signed another body, but if Buchanan misses any time it looks like we'll finally see Jake Bequette.

    What, no one is excited by this news?
