    Chad Brown has been out for 7 straight practices now after leaving with a wrist injury. They mentioned on PFW in Progress today that a source outside the team said it's the same injury as Bruschi's.

    Uh-oh, Greenberg's gonna be pissed that Belichick hasn't told him.

    I'm really disappointed that Jackson can't get out there. Not disappointed in Chad, I have no doubt it's legit, just disappointed in the situation.

    I agree. Disappointment, but a) it's not the end of the world, and it doesn't mean his complete season performance takes a major hit and b) it is legit.

    The mood was different though on PFW today. I think it was Casale who called him "Mrs. Jackson" and compared the situation to Terry Glenn's rookie year.

    They said that, with "only" a hamstring injury, Jackson should be out there "manning it out."

    I'm sorry, but "manning it out" sometimes correlates to stupidity at this point in the season. If a player has an injury, the team is going to take every precaution possible.

    For some reason In my POV i think Chad being hurt is complete BS. He's out there 9 times out of ten and i think they just want him learning the schemes first and foremost before he starts playing.

    Could he have a hamstring injury? Sure but i doubt its anything more than a pull or strain.

    The Chad Brown thing is terrible because he was one of my sleepers in camp so far. He's been fast and effective in all of his roles up until his wrist injury.

    We need Chad Jackson to start practicing as soon as possible - and so does Chad Jackson. Maybe just let him heal up for this week - don't rush back for the game (which he definitely won't play in) and just focus on COMPLETELY healing and being ready to go Monday morning.

    Right, it is important to remember that he has an injury, he's not at home holding out. Which means he's in the meetings, working with the coaches, learning the offense, etc, etc, not sitting on the couch picking his nose. He is progressing even though he's not on the field.

    If the Patriots have learned anything over the past 3 seasons is that they need to take every precaution to ensure that the guys stay healthy. If that means taking less reps in Camp so be it as long as they are on the field as healthy as possible come January.

    I don't think it is much more than the Pats doing exactly that with the majority of the injured players.

    So sit back relax and pour a tall glass of the Kool-Aid!
