Pats list 20 players as injured, limited | ProFootballTalk
why isn't this in the Wednesday practice thread where this very fact was mentioned?
My bad, Mods please merge
I love it when Belichick pokes Goodell in the eye like that - reporting so many injuries (indeed, everyone is banged up at this point in the year) to ultimately obscure them. I hardly think the players mind this added protection.
Why should any coach show any respect to an injury reporting system that puts gambling interests ahead of player safety?
Besides the good fellas involved in gambling, the only other entity injury reporting benefits would be those players who want to know how best to target their Bounty programs.
Without Goodellâ€™s own strictly enforced injury reporting policy, Bountygate could never have happened
I respect Belichickâ€™s disrespect for Goodellâ€™s inane policy.
At least there's no Tom Brady - shoulder there this year. I wonder which of these guys are not going to play? Sure hope Talib, Denard & Ninkovich can go...

This is the best one I've seen on an injury report, a finger injury? Oh Bill
Do you think Belichick mis-read the instructions on how to fill out the form? Maybe he thought he was supposed to identify one or two body parts per player, sort of like a bad game of "Operation."
There's no way this report is complete. Profootballtalk somehow missed Brady's name.
Bummer, I really thought this was the week we would set yet another NFL record by having 50+ players listed on the injury report.
The fact that there is only 20 and no one is on the doubtful list is a great sign. When it comes to the world of BB injury reporting, it's like listening to a politician speak. The only real information you'll get is what can be deciphered from between the lines.
Either that or, as another poster aptly pointed out, maybe BB doesn't know how to properly fill out the injury report :rofl:
The injury report alone could make a Pats V Baltimore game one worth waiting for. BB might actually put 40 players on the list this time just to tweak moron Harbaugh for his comments some weeks ago....
In spite of the 20 players in the injury list, the team is perhaps the healthiest its been since game 2:
In rarity, Pats have all starters intact - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston
If Talib and Dennard are able to play at anything near full strength, the Pats should finally be able to field a group that looks like what their team was designed to look like for the playoffs when the traded for Talib almost two and a half months ago.
Except this one is probably one of the few that can't be argued with as he missed week 17 due to the injury.
What's the story here? I thought they had 53 on their roster?
I didn't see this in any other story or posting (maybe I wasn't looking hard enough): "One day after 20 players were limited at practice, the Patriots had only five players listed on the injury report on Friday. "
Wow! The Patriots really are the healthiest they have been in some time.....
Edit: Whoops "healing waters" thread has it.......never mind
