Patriots sign DL Louis Leonard; Wilhite to IR
Well, thank god Butler has stepped up recently.
I thought this might happen when we signed another DB last week. He was playing decent this year before the injury.
Not be confused with the 'veteran' Leonard Little. The somewhat similar names had me wondering for second...
No it's the same guy. His full name is Louis Leonard Little. He's just really well rounded.
Sort of had to be one of Wright, Prior, Wilhite.
Been a while since we put a corner on IR - Pat's are usually good for several.
Too bad, not insurmountable.
This means they are expecting Wright or Pryor to play by or before the playoffs which is good.
im honestly not really phased by this. I actually like wilhite but i do not trust him. I love his speed but he is an erratic tackler, always seems to have a communication error at some point in games, and his well documented lack of ball skills drive me crazy. Just glad it wasn't Wright.
That brought a sigh of relief from me. Thanks.
I'm not ready to say that- yet.
Pats sign Chevis Jackson and almost a week later they IR Wilhite.
Pats sign Leonard and 5 days later they.......?
Last I heard was that BB was playing it pretty close to the vest re: Wright. Pryor's back issue has also been murky.
True that. Unfortunate news but if I had to choose 1 of the 3 to lose to IR it'd be Wilhite, not a disservice to him but I think Butler and Arrington have been fine behind McCourty. Plus we have solid depth at DB overall. In the playoffs I hope to have all or most of our typical DL rotation, even though they have already been playing amazing without Wright/Pryor. That plus the prospects of us getting a bye week to rest up and 2 full weeks for BB to prepare for AFC playoffs has me pumped!
I had a feeling this was going to happen yesterday. Hip injuries can be real tricky for CB's. It's a shame too, as Wilhite was beginning to finally play well in the slot.
Yikes... we're getting scary thin at CB. We need McCourty to be 100% very quickly.
Thad Turner still on PQ?

How about Deltha O'Neal?!
This analysis seems spot on. Wilhite going on IR is not related to the health or availablity of Wright or Pryor.
Leonard and Eric Moore being signed are arguably more related to the absense of Pryor and Wright.
Too bad. He was playing decent this year when he was out there. I think Butler is better anyways though, but would be nice to have some depth.
The New England Patriots had depth at cornerback after the 2010 NFL Draft. No one expected Bodden to be placed on IR prior to the start of the season and now Wilhite is gone for the season as well. Five cornerbacks on the roster at the start of the season is sufficient.
Agreed. But I meant currently, as things could get dicey with one more injury. Just like at guard, Connolly did a great job with Mankins out and then filled in for Neal, but with Neal and Kaczur both on IR, an area of strength suddenly becomes very shallow with untested players.
Separate names with a comma.
