    Short week and all ... we'll never know how extensive the Mike Wright injury was. He is our sack leader and losing him in the second half definitely hurt. The 1st Satan Manning INT was directly related to pressure from Wright.

    The Patriots..and especially the defensive players have been raving about Wright lately....saying that he is very "underated".

    He seemed fine. His speed and quickness to pressure QB are unique among our DL. Would like to get another.

    I didn't mean we were sunk this Thursday, just that it doesn't bode well for Wright playing then.

    My bad. No disrespect to the Lions, but if there's an opportunity to sit him to get him better this game is about as good as it gets. He will definitely be needed the following week.

    He's our most consistent interior rusher so it's a bit of a blow. Having him out there to close out the game would have helped. Doubt he plays against Detroit, but hopefully he's ready for the Jets game.

    It's an even bigger blow with Pryor out right now..

    Leaves the Pats with Wilfork, G. Warren. Deaderick, Brace, K. Love as viable options.. And none of them are truly viable 3rd down options.. It will be interesting.

    That's a really good point about Pryor being out. You're right, no one is really a viable replacement. Might have to use more blitzes to generate pressure in those situations.

    Lots of folks would have said the same thing about the Browns. The Lions are plenty capable of beating us if we don't bring our A game.

    I think the Seymour love pat to Rapistburger's face proves that Rapistburger spent most of his time off earlier this week taking acting classes and learning to flop around on the ground.

    Anyone Worried About Wright?

    It would be great to have him back for the playoffs. Heard Tom Curran (I think) say they haven't even seen him in the locker room and that's not a good sign...

    Re: Anyone Worried About Wright?

    Worried about three things, in this order of importance:

    1. That his concussion not haunt him for the rest of his life; that he doesn't have post concussion symptoms that have plagued so many NFL players.

    2. That he be able to return to the team at some point.

    3. That he be able to return to the team this year.

    It's certainly concerning. 6+ weeks is an awful long time to not be seen following a concussion. Have there been any similar length concussion related absences in the NFL?

    I worry about those things too and in that order. But if the Team thought he was done for the year they would have put him on IR and opened up the roster spot so they must think he'll be able to come back.

    Knowing BB, Wright is probably in a coma, and he'll be revived just in time for the Superbowl.

    Wonder if Spikes coming back might make that happen?

    I am most worried about #3 because the Pats will make up for his loss in the offseason...they really need him in 2 wks and then moving forward through the SB.
    I still can't recall the play he was injured on and no video of the play, either.

    It goes back 50 years to a much more primitive time in medicine and treatment but the most famous NFL concussion was Frank Gifford's after a brutal hit by Chuck Bednarik in the 1960 championship game. Gifford was out of football for over a year..

    That could be the move. I hope not. We could really use Wright. I understand resting him and taking precautions, but if he's not even in the locker room, that seems to suggest he's nowhere near coming back.

    It's really scary, he obviously had a significant brain injury to still be away from the stadium at this point. I've just been clinging to the fact that they haven't IRed him as a sign that the situation's not too dire.

    Don't rely on that. Given the Spikes roster opening, BB may simply be waiting as long as he possibly can before making an irrevocable decision. Why not?

    It may be that he's already made the decision, but wants to evaluate who to cut and who to keep for the postseason roster. I am sure the move will come after the last game on Sunday when the new players have put in enough reps.

    I remember reading that Wright's neck was involved- so it may be a spinal concussion.

    Precisely. And as commented previously any last minute injuries factored in. Good management does not make precipitous decisions before all the information is available when timeliness is not required.

    I don't think Spikes can be the key factor, since Wright was out for a month with no IR before Spikes' oopsie came to light.

    Spikes is not a key factor. It's simply that when he rejoins the roster sometime after tomorrow's game, somebody's gotta go. Hopefully the right person.
