Unleash the rookie duo in Vellano-Jones.
Expected ... probably be out next week also ... luckily not out for the season.
Jones--Vellano--and don't forget Mrs. Nesbitt.
hope he gets back soon they need him, Leon Washington has been a waste of a roster spot
I believe Jones was a 6th round pick?
I expected as much. No way he was going to play missing everyday of practice this week.
Yeah, agreed. I hate it but ...I actually like McCourty returning against Cincy, he looked good, he's pretty natural at it. I just hate having one of our best players back there. So far Washington has contributed as much to the team as Gronk has.
Man, we are just cursed injury wise. First Wilfork and now Kelly. Not to add all the injuries prior to those 2. Great coaching job by BB, how the hell are we 4-1 with the second best scoring defense ? I am pretty pysched about Chris Jones though, he's an interesting prospect, a DT that can rush the QB. Already has 1.5 sacks. I believe Vellano has a sack, and Buchanon has 2, Youth is being served !
Don't speak too soon. Dr Gill is on the case.
It is interesting though...kudos to BB for bringing in Vellano and Jones. They seem to be serviceable players so far; if we had last year's roster at DT right now we'd be up the creek with no paddle.
Leon Washington has been an absolute waste of a roster spot. He's provided zero improvement in the return game since he can't seem to find his way onto the football field on Sundays.
Why hasn't he been cut yet?
Probably because his injury isn't season-ending?
Curious if anyone else had the same thoughts. Last week when Kelly got injured, it looked pretty bad. Then we saw him kind of shaking it off on the sidelines for a it. Then the goalline stand came, and he ran back onto the field. I said to myself, there is no way he should be out there after what looked like a pretty good scare, I don't want him to risk aggravating it. Then after the goalline stand, he could barely walk and looked like he aggravated it a bit more.
Did anyone else notice that or have that same thought process? Just curious.
Pretty sure it's not possible that he was put in a situation to aggravate an injury as he was examined by Dr. Gill on the sidelines.
Yep. Vellano and Jones both look like they can be excellent #4 to solid #3 defensive tackles going forward. The problem is that they're being relied on as starters.
It's not usually a good sign when someone who plays an impact sport gets a non-contact injury. Since T.K.'s not gone under the knife, though, it seems likely that it was a muscle pull or some kind of sprain than anything worse than that.
Of course, given that Patriots medical staff...
Of all the needs this team has at TE and DL, why on earth is Washington still here? Guy hasn't done a damn thing all year. What a waste of a spot. WTF!!
As long as they're not huge liabilities - I think that's the most we can hope for at this point.
A lot of Leon bashing and he has deserved it but with the way this offense has been anything we can get from the KR will be great and obviously his injuries arent season ending. Also he was here week one so he is paid in full either way. He needs to hurry the f up though, get healed up and give us more than one return for the money.
I would think as the weeks go on his spot would be a prime candidate if we need to add depth but right now we are thin at RB and again his injuries arent season ending.
Cut Washington and have Boyce do KR. Sign a TE or DL. The guy has been nothing more than a pure waste of money and a spot.
