    Brandon Spikes has MCL strain

    Source: New England Patriots' Brandon Spikes strains MCL, is week to week - ESPN Boston

    seems to be the injury going around the pats this year...first Hernandez, then mayo, now spikes....hopefully it isnt too severe and he can be out there against the jets.

    I think the emergence of brandon spikes has really done alot to improve our linebackers. that big hit yesterday on the receiver to force a 4th down was big..hes really been hustling out there

    I don't know if the Pats can afford to have him sit next week. Hopefully he's ready to play.

    He was playing better last game than Mayo has all season.

    Re: Brandon Spikes has MCL strain

    Not to change the subject, but I thought I saw Hernandez limping a bit after at least one play. I think he's on the fragile side in general and/or is a guy who doesn't wholly embrace the pain of playing football, which may be one reason he has ball security issues.

    Re: Brandon Spikes has MCL strain

    Spikes is a massive breath of fresh air and our only LB that played like he actually has testosterone in his body.

    Get healthy, kid. Need him in a bad way to keep the Jets run game in check.

    Could have been much worse. Glad he will return soon. His hit yesterday reminded me of Brian Cox. Been a while since we've seen that sort of physical presence.

    Guys, don't worry. We have Gary Guyton to lay the wood at ILB now. No one hits harder than him.

    Never understood all the Spikes hate. Barely in the league and people expect all-pro play from him. He's decent and getting better. Him and Mayo will be nice duo once both are fully healthy.
