    Patriots WR Price Misses Practice Saturday
    By: Ian Logue

    Patriots wide receiver Taylor Price took a vicious head-to-head shot late in the game during Thursday night during New England's 47-12 win, and it looks like he may be suffering some ill-effects from it....

    Rage. :mad: Just hope they're careful with him; there's no reason at all to rush him back.

    That ************ who hit Price was the same douchebag who hit #47 ?

    Hope that ****er breaks a leg and i don't mean it as in good luck.

    Meh...remember Wright? I never like seeing a player take a hit like that. And considering the reports that Price has been looking good in training camp and then he performs in his first preseason game...really don't want him to miss any time.

    I don't seem to remember the hit on Price as head to head at all. I was worried about his knees when it happened. Is there YouTube for this?

    It really looked helmet to helmet to me. I'm sure there is a shorter vid with this footage but I know it is in this long one:

    As an update, Ian Rapoport is saying that it looks like he "tweaked an ankle" in the game, but obviously there's no official word as to what it is. All I have to say is watching that hit again - he got hit pretty hard, so who knows. Hopefully either way he'll be OK.

    You're thinking about his punt return. That punt return occurred well after that hit he took to the head on the called back interception. Considering how strict they are about concussions I doubt he would have been in returning that punt if it was very serious.

    He played a lot in game 1. Give him a day off and let some other guys get some reps.

    Yup it was definitely a helmet to helmet and it drew a flag. Hopefully Price will be ok. I can totally understand why the Pats are being careful with him at this stage. Very promising young player.

    Yes, the same LB who took out Cox. But to his credit, Price bounced right back up and got on with the next play. This is one tough SOB. The "ankle tweak" is probably a bit of stretch.

    No need to call him a bunch of asterisks, he was only doing his job.

    The fault, rather, lies with Mallet who didn't protect Price. You never want to lead your receiver into a collision.

    How the hell was he doing his job? I might have given him a pass if it was just the hit on Price but the hit on Cox earlier clearly shows that guy has some roidrage issues or something. Totally uncalled for in a preseason game against a team that isn't even a rival.

    Price had a punt return in the 4th quarter. It looked like he took a low hit to his left knee. He came up gingerly and they went to a sideline interview. At the time I remember hoping he didn't injure his knee. The Head-to-head hit came with 14 min left. This punt was when there was 6 min left. Well after the illegal hit.

    Its has NOTHING to do with the hit to his head. He talked to media after the game and sounded fine. If there had been any lingering affect from the head shot, they wouldn't have allowed to to speak to the media.

    Exactly. Not worried about him, he took some hard body shots, slams and other things. I know he was trying to make a point but if he makes the cut, I will wish they help him out to protect himself a bit.

    I'm a little concerned about dirty play from Tampa's offensive line Thursday night. Check out Freeman's run for a TD (0:30 mark) and one of the TB offensive lineman went low and from behind on a Chief who was in pursuit.

    Thank you for posting that. I had forgotten about the earlier hit. I really don't think that's why he's out though. I think the punt return kneebomb is much more likely. Hopefully nothing serious.

    This is why I hate the Jags, they and the titans are the dirtiest teams in the NFL.
