    Per RealPatriots Twitter. Williams has been a frequent PS Player of the Week according to PFW in Progress.

    Nick Moore and Robert Ortiz have also been officially signed to the practice squad, while Darnell Jenkins has gone on the Practice Squad/Injured list with an ankle/foot injury. That leaves one opening on the practice squad, once you factor in the promotion of Wendell last week.

    Belichick rewards another Practice Squad player and continues to build the 80 man roster.

    Who knows? I am expecting to see "Limited: Aiken, shoulder" in a few minutes.

    He was a ST phenom at USC, nicknamed "hitman" by Pete Carroll. One would think he is being activated to help on ST, with maybe Sam Aiken hurting with injury or playing more on offense with Welker out.

    Special teams is important, especially considering our return game hasn't been very explosive this year.

    I agree. He could indeed play special teams if Aiken is out.

    FWIW, only Welker and Connolly weren't at practice today, meaning Aiken was out there. But I did see him get injured on Sunday, on the Pollard INT. On PFW in Progress yesterday, Perillo said, according to a "sideline source," that it wasn't "anything serious."

    Good to see. And Morris also was not listed despite limping off the field. Connolly was very effective as the FB against J'ville, so now it will be BJGE (who made a couple of good block for Taylor SUn) and Morris leading the way on short yardage situations.

    the injury report is typical of BB every yr. Once in the postseason it dwindles down to only the obvious and potential serious ones instead of a 15 man laundry list in the regular season.

    BJGE had a key block for that last Taylor TD. He is getting better at the lead block, but I think we really lost something when we lost Heath Evans because that man could think like a true RB and seemed to always stone the right player at the right time.

    With Connolly injured, I guess Green-Ellis is our fullback.

    This should maybe have its own thread, but I can't start one.
