    Since it is only a walkthrough, it doesn't mean a heck of a lot of who is playing, but a good sign that the Pats will have all their weapons other than Bolden. And with the Jets' run defense, Bolden isn't a crucial must have.

    Also, Lloyd said today he is fine.

    Surprised to see the Jets 28th in the league in run defense.

    NFL Stats: by Team Category

    Wouldn't mind seeing Bolden in there, do some damage. Wear 'em down with the 1-2 punch.

    Of note, Pryor returns so clock is ticking for badly needed help in interior pass rush.

    Great to hear Lloyd seems fine.
    On the topic of Bolden it just highlights the Vereen disappointment. His injury had a major negative effect on the run game Sunday as Ridley was mostly ineffective. Why can't the guy get reps whatsoever, at the very least he should be able to return kicks where we probably have one of the worst KR games in the league.

    Not surprised about Lloyd. Bedard (I believe) noted that he looked fine boarding the airplane after the Seattle game.

    It's still early in the week, but that's a whole lot better than last week when what was it, fifteen(?) players were limited or did not participate in practice. Very good news considering the number of players that missed time or didn't finish the game in Seattle.


    Brandon Bolden misses walkthrough, Myron Pryor appears | Boston Herald



    The Patriots held a rare walkthrough today at Gillette Stadium after getting banged up Sunday against the Seahawks. Plus, after a long trip to Seattle, they’ve deemed it beneficial to dial it back with a physical game upcoming against the Jets.

    This is their first regular practice day of the season out of pads or shells.

    As such, they had a strong turnout, with running back Brandon Bolden (knee) and linebacker Tracy White (foot) being the only players absent. It’s a good sign in terms of participation, but tomorrow will provide a better indication of the team’s health when they’re back in pads or shells.

    Also, defensive lineman Myron Pryor was on the field, which should be an indication that he’s close to coming off the physically unable to perform list.​

    Jeff Howe with clarification

    Quick note: Pryor can watch practice w/o being activated from PUP. If he participated today, the clock would start. Otherwise, it hasn't.



    So basically the Pats can activate him off PUP at any time now, but the window as to when they must make a decision to either activate him or leave him off the roster for the remainder of the season has not yet begun, as I understand it.

    I'd like to see Bolden in there too, but I think Ridley and Woodhead (and possibly Vereen) can exploit that run defense.

    Just a walkthru today so means very little but still at least those hurt on sunday can be removed from the serious injury list.

    Of which the most critical may have been Slater. He was an absolute beast on STs all season but in particular last week in keeping Leon contained. And it was no small coincidence that the very first return after his injury was a big a return. I am fully convinced that had Slater not got hurt we would not have let up such a big return and who knows without the big play to fire them up and more distance needed to drive maybe they dont succeed.

    Which makes me wonder why does it always seem that our injuries come at the worst times and directly lead to losses. Like last year with Sergio the guy comes in for one play and gives up the game winning play. or Sunday with the above mentioned return or with the two rookie safeties getting beat for the TD.

    A bunch of twitter reports are appearing now regarding the injury report.

    - Brandon Bolden and Tracy White did not practice on Wednesday

    - Hernandez, Gronk, Hightower & Mankins all among the limited for Patriots at today's practice.

    - Pats reported 2 DNPs (Bolden & White) and 11 limited. Kyle Love (knee) had full participation.

    - Patrick Chung (shoulder) and Sterling Moore (knee) added to injury report as limited. Also, Steve Gregory (hip) limited in return

    - Shane Vereen, Justin Francis, Brandon Deaderick, and Michael Hoomanawanui were removed from the injury report

    - WR Brandon Lloyd not on Patriots injury report after landing hard on shoulder late Sunday. He returned to game.

    - Before drawing any sweeping conclusions about #Patriots health based on injury report, just a reminder that it was a walkthrough today.

    - Bolden/White did not practice. Love full partic. Chung, Edelman, Gregory, Gronk, Hern, Htower, McDonald, Moore, Vollmer, Welker limited.

    I didn't like the 2 RBs in 2 consecutive picks thing (I had 5 positions of need that I thought each merited a high selection) and, if they wanted to double up on a position, they could have drafted two of the Titus Young/Torrey Smith/Randall Cobb trio and essentially rebuilt the WR corps in one swoop.

    No team is ever going to hit on 100% of it's picks. RB was a need, and the need one take two philosophy is sound. Minimizes bust potential, some times it works out spectacularly (Gronk/Hernandez).

    Why do they still need him? Would think Gronk,Aaron,and Fells would be enough lol. And they still have Shianco on IR.

    I was responding specifically to what patsinthesnow, which was about the "glaring hole" from round 2 of 2011, and the team sure didn't need to draft 2 RBs. Other positions had obvious needs, as well. As people here are so very fond of saying, you can get lucky with a running back in any round.

    My mentioning the receivers, though, was just to point out that the entire corps could have been made over. This team could currently have a group of

    Welker
    Smith/Young
    Cobb/Young
    Edelman
    WR5/WR6(?)

    for example, which would not only be solid for now, but would be strong for the future, as well. Instead, we've got Dowling and Vereen, two players who have been more brittle than flowers dipped in liquid nitrogen.

    My assumption is that they still feel way more comfortable with the other options over Vereen, particularly in the hurry up too.

    I think he is still behind in learning the nuances of the offense, as it is obviously quite complex.

    Blitz pickup is certainly another issue, but IIRC he was supposed to be halfway decent in that aspect of his game..

    The KR game is something that I honestly expected to improve. McCourty and Woodhead both look kind of tentative coming out from the endzone to me, of course that may just be my personal opinion too. It just doesn't seem like they hit their stride with much authority.

    I don't believe that the clock is ticking on Pryor yet, as I don't believe that he was taken off the PUP list yet.

    I could be wrong of course, apologies if so.

    I still have faith in vereen. Also, our KR game would improve if Slater would actually let somebody run it out for once lol. I love slater(look at the punt return after he got hurt), but he would shut down devin hester if he was our kick returner as well.

    Bolden has been pretty crucial to this offense so far. Ridley isn't the same back when he has to carry the load himself. He may already be wearing down a bit and was definitely easier to tackle on Sunday than in previous weeks.

    Having that bowling ball 1-2 punch we had going in the running game will be more crucial to the team's future success than anything else. The New England Patriots will not be denied if they have a dominant running game and Bolden is a crucial element. Until Vareen shows up and does anything i don't count him as one of our options at tailback.

    Get well soon Mr. Bolden. I do not want to see Brady attempting 50 passes again anytime soon.

    I hear what you're saying, but from what I understand, that is one of Slater's responsibilities as a ST vet/captain.

    If the ball is deep enough in the endzone, he is supposed to tell the KR to stay there, as opposed to trying to run it out.

    I am guessing that may be what Belichick and/or the ST coach wants him to do in that situation, if not he likely would Tell Hester to down it in the EZ ;)

    Just as a note on the conversation had they avoided two backs then we likely would not have Ridley as they targeted Vareen first. For what its worth you could use this to support your argument or the other as we took two and at least got one out of the deal or we could skipped the 2 got a better player and still got Ridley later.
