    Unless I missed something, I feel like we never got a definitive answer on this. I've looked through Reiss' Pieces archives and Reiss says it was the foot, but I thought there was some confusion on the issue, and even then - does anyone know what the specific injury was? Will it have any impact on him early in 08?

    i thought it was his foot. you'll never find out the specifics.

    I am guessing it is similar to Freeney?

    It was his foot. After the game (maybe the next day on the radio) someone mentioned his shoulder to Belichick who was fine with saying something like "you heard it was his shoulder ? Fine, let's go with that" or something along those lines.

    What is it ? Who knows. It would be as bad as MrBigglesWorth says, a lis franc tear. Or as "minor" as a broken bone that they didn't think would be healed enough to come back in 2007.

    No I think it was the opposite. I think Belichick said something like, "We announced it as a foot? Let's leave it at that."

    OK, thanks for the input all. It would be a major concern if Colvin's injury had any effect on 08...

    As we can save $5.5M by releasing him, if there's anything above a minor concern for '08, we can just move on and get the cap savings. I'm hoping for a 100% Colvin but with only a year left we aren't stuck with him if his injury is an issue heading into next year.

    That's a good point & that's very true, but I also agree I'd rather have Colvin at 100% as it's just one more problem to address if we have to cut him. Much like his injury did during the regular season, releasing him would cause a ripple effect, in this case on our offseason moves. We'd probably have to address OLB with that #7 pick then, hopefully Gholston, but that would prevent us from trading down and filling needs at CB or OL...

    Let's hope it wasn't a lisfranc injury. If that's the case, I think the Pats might be best off just releasing him and hoping Gholston falls to #7.

    According to Colvin's father who I met at the super bowl. He said it was a broken foot. He said he was already out of the cast and that it is nothing to be concerned about.

    As to the contract, with the bump in the cap the past few years 7-8 mil isnt as much as it was in the past especially for a player of his caliber. He is prolly not going to want to play on a one year deal so he has incentive to renegotiate and for a one year deal I could live with 7-8 mil. So I expect Colvin to back next year and ready to go training camp.

    Definitely good news - we missed him badly. I could live with his one year hit but would love him to do a new 4-5 year contract that gets him a chunky signing bonus but saves us some cap room.

    Yep. Very good news. I guess I "misremembered" Belichick's statement awhile back.

    I would be surprised if Colvin is back unless they honor his contract as it stands. It would be a big surprise for him to renegotiate for significantly less money.
