    Light will be out for a long time imo. It looks like a High Ankle Sprain rather than knee. Does Solder Boy take LT? Vollmer looks like sh!t at RT (probably his back injury). Is Cannon a viable RT option? I did not pay attention to him at RT. How did Cannon look as a fill in? Vollmer was getting OWNED last night.

    SK,SK, SK, that is the type of statement that make people shake their heads. :cool:
    How do you know he'll be out for a "long time"? How do you know he'll be out at all?
    I'm a little fuzzy due to lack of sleep, but I thought he returned to the game shortly after he went out.

    Rather than move the thread, I'll await to hear your insider information on Matt's medical condition.

    Vollmer got beat bad by Hali (no slouch) on one of the sacks. The others came on a blown assignment on the left side of the line, and a coverage sack where Brady stepped up, held it a little too long, and got smacked in the back. I don't think Vollmer was anything special, but I don't think he was getting owned per se. The whole line looked lost early on and settled nicely in the second half.

    I didn't realize he came back PNM


    I know Connolly came back off and on... You positive Light came back on the field???


    when an old dude gets hurt I tend to worry much more than a person with the same kind of injury that is 5-8 years younger.

    I need proof Light was back

    plz don'tmove the thread. You realize how the clandestine operations of the Patriot's never reveal anything. It's suffice to say that with Cannon activated, we might be able to shift Solder to LT. Vollmer and Cannon can Swing @ RT

    I don't think that Light came back. In any case, there is no worry at OT with Solder and Vollmer starting, and with Cannon as our backup RT. I'd add an OL to the 53 man roster while Light is out.

    The effect may be felt more at TE, unless Cannon can be our #3, blocking, TE. It was great to see 3 TE's and a pulling guard leading our running back to a first down.

    Light did not return to the game and had a walking cast on leaving the stadium.

    Tamba Hali is a Big Tiime Sack master that's what he' s being paid to do...no shame on Vollmer there, he's a good RT.

    Vollmer hasn't played anywhere near as well as he did last year. He should have been a pro-bowler. I think Peter King had him on his all pro team and that includes NFC/AFC players. He's had a nagging back injury. He's missed a lot of practice time. Probably won't be as good as he was last year, but sucks to get hurt. Sure he'll be fine in the long run. We didn't throw the ball with Cannon at RT except a couple of short passes. Vereen got most of the yardage on his own. Marcus still has a long way to go to be as good as an injured Seabass.

    Light didn't come back after getting hurt. Left the stadium in a walking boot. Solder can fill in for him this week. Tough assignment against Trent Cole if you're injured. Gonna suck that we can't use Solder as a tight end. Offense seems to click when we do that. Have to think long term though. Need Matt Light for the playoffs. Probably not wise to risk him this week.

    Great win last night lead by the D. Wow it's been a while since I've said that! Special teams awesome. The only negative was the play of the o-line in pass protection, and more specific Vollmer was bad last night.

    If you assume Light is injured more significantly than a simple boot ...... than it's a good question.

    Solder is playing better than Vollmer .... by a lot. He's our LT.

    Cannon can (possibly) take Solder's TE duty. Cannon can also spell Vollmer, where possible. In any case, Light needs to be healthy for January, he should sit until he is. After Philly, we should be able to handle it without a problem.

    The upside of Light being dinged is that we get to play our reserves, allowing them to be evaluated for the future and preparing them should they be needed in the playoffs.

    This is what quality depth is about.. Cannon, a possible 1st round pick, steps in for the injured Light..

    This team is being rebuilt on the fly...

    I said to my fuzzy memory he came back. However he may not have done so.
    But that only deflects from the original question which is: What insider info do you have that back up your assertion that he will be out "a long time".

    You guys know I had posted this before, so I'll say it again now that we're discussing it.

    Why did BB take Solder out of that RT spot after he played so well over there?

    After watching Solder play so well at the beginning of the season, how and why did he lose his job? Since Vollmer has been inserted at RT and BB chose to sit the better RT, that side of the line has been a major weak spot. Waters is holding up his end, but Vollmer's play was not at the level of Solder's, not at all.

    Agreed on the first part, but he made Vollmer look absolutely foolish.

    Our entire OL health was my biggest concern coming out of this game.

    Hopefully Connelly's OK - I'm not even sure who our third string Center is (Edelman? ;))

    Even if guys are on the field they're not at full strength. I guess everyone's hurting at this point in the season but these guys are clearly not close to full strength.

    Although the Bend But Don't Break Defense is doing better, the prospects for this team depend on giving Brady enough time to make plays.

    Getting healthy for the playoffs is key.

    On Matt Light's injury: I hear it's an inside sprain, which is good news. Once MRI confirms nothing is torn, shouldn't be a major deal.

    very good news, but do expect him out for 2 maybe 3 weeks

    they should be delicate so we do not compromise his "Real Season" health... the Real Season hasn't started yet.:cool:
