    The poor guy can't seem avoid breaks. He did get a nice contract extension last offseason, so at least he's not hurt in a contract year.

    Hopefully the toes heal correctly and he can return to form next season. Good luck, Eugene!

    one of my favorite pats from the SB years. Apparently after he injured himself (special teams play just before/after the Eagle's super bowl game), he never recovered to starting form.

    He made one nice play with a pick 6 to seal the win in the 16-0 run but other than that, didn't have it in him.

    But I'm confused, wasn't he the recipient of the Brett Favre chop block in pre-season? Did he miss any time for that?

    Sorry to see. As much as I wanted to see him succeed here, it seems he found a home in Houston. Let's hope he can come back to 100 %.

    Those former Patriot secondary players are having a tough time of it this season.

    Wilson didn't "injure himself." His arm got broken on a special teams play when he was trying to make a tackle during the SB against the Eagles. It was almost identical to when Harrison broke his arm on a play in 2003.

    It's former Pats players in general as Heath Evans went on the IR with an ACL injury as well.

    And a few others suffered injuries though not to injured reserve..

    That stinks. Poor Geno. He was really good in 2004.

    Geno was indeed knee-capped by Lord Brett on a $10K illegal crackback block. Happily Geno sustained no serious injury, and though he did not finish that preseason game - and as far as I know missed the rest of preseason, he was able to come back fairly quickly.

    It's no surprise those Tennessee dirtbirds sent him out for the season with broken toes. Good luck Geno.
