    I don't think so -- here is the practice report for the week:
    OUT (DEFINITELY WILL NOT PLAY)

    Thursday
    DE Mike Wright (foot)

    Friday
    DE Mike Wright (foot), G Billy Yates (foot)


    DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN PRACTICE

    Thursday
    G Billy Yates (foot)

    Friday
    LB Adalius Thomas (team decision)


    LIMITED PARTICIPATION IN PRACTICE

    Thursday
    G Steve Neal (shoulder), S James Sanders (knee), LB Mike Vrabel (thigh), TE Benjamin Watson (ankle)

    Friday
    G Steve Neal (shoulder), S James Sanders (knee), LB Mike Vrabel (thigh), TE Benjamin Watson (ankle)


    FULL PARTICIPATION IN PRACTICE

    Thursday
    QB Tom Brady (right shoulder)

    Friday
    QB Tom Brady (right shoulder)

    Vrabel looks questionable with a thigh injury but that probably means he'll play anyway...

    I sure hope you're right, Skree.
    That would suck losing him right now.

    I'd hope they would get Pierre Woods some serious playing time if Vrabel is in fact out.

    Is there a better link then just a poster form KFFL. He may or may not be right but that is like someone link here and saying someone is out just because someone posted it on a messageboard.

    Nothing against KFFL, but if all we have is a poster or two from there.....I am not buying.

    There's no debating that Vrabel is listed as "Questionable" -- that's not rumor, it's official. Also "Questionable" are Watson, Neal, and Sanders. History says probably half of those four will play and half won't.

    The issue is whether Belichick will play an injured Vrabel and Watson.

    Yesterday on WEEI (after the disasterous segment that was Jose Canseco), Burton, Lobel and Ted Johnson were talking about how Vrabel had been limping around the clubhouse this week. They said it was an ankle and that this was a significant limp. Burton said he did not expect Vrabel to play to day.

    For what it is worth, Ted Johnson's position was that they would go with a 4-3 if Vrabel didn't play.

    Ted Johnson obviously knows more than I do but that makes no sense. If we were missing an ILB I could see it but it's not like Seau or Bruschi can move to OLB. We'll still have Thomas and the two ILB.

    They made it seem as if Woods or EA would see some time.

    I could see Woods or Chad Brown at OLB but that still doesn't dictate moving to a 4-3 like it would if Bruschi or Seau were hurt.

    This was my thinking too. If it's a leg injury, and the conditions are slick and the ground harder, he would almost be guaranteed to aggravate it during the game.

    I don't want to lose to the Jets by any means, but I would rather lose to the Jets (which we still shouldn't do, even without Vrabel) than lose V for the playoff run.
