    Ty Warren failed his conditioning test and his physical. After being released, he said others failed their tests as well. Wonder who those players might be?

    im not sure but i think if they come into TC like 5 or 10lbs Overweight they fail that could be why so many DL and OL men faild

    That amounts to running a mile in about 20 minutes, which is pretty leisurely but it is done in sprint bursts which are not all out but are not jogs either. It really seems a test of maintaining the right pace during the sprints so you don't gas yourself early.

    I imagine this test must be different from player to player though; an athletic athlete such as hernandez should have no problem with this. For the fatties on the other hand, this might be a monumental challenge.

    The tests differ by position.

    So if it's true as someone posted that Stroud, Kazcur, Tony Carther, TBC, and Ty Warren
    all failed their physicals, does that mean that the Patriots cut players who were injured, or just who couldn't pass the conditioning drill? Stroud, Kazcur, TBC, and Warren we know were previously injured at one level or another.

    Brings me to my question: I thought under the old rules, you couldn't cut players who were hurt, unless you came to a financial agreement with them. Have the rules changed?
    Anybody know?

    I thought the old rules were that one could not cut anyone if they were injured after they passed their physicals. However, one could not be on the roster at the start of training camp unless one passed a physical.

    Interesting question in my mind is whether the Patriots consider the conditioning run as part of the physical. Do they?

    One of the reasons Antoine Smith (sp?) used to fail every year: he was a big body at 235 grouped with some of the lighter, faster players like Faulk and the receivers. They run all the RBs together.

    Makes it tough on guys like Smith and probably Ridley this year. Easier on guys like Edelman and Woodhead.

    You and I could probably pass the conditioning test for DTs.
