FOXBORO, MA — Belichick said on Thursday that Patriots quarterback Drew Bledsoe is about another week and a half away before he will begin any kind of physical workout. Bledsoe has been out the last couple of weeks recovering from a chest injury after being hit by linebacker Mo Lewis a little over two weeks ago. The New England quarterback was later hospitalized after the game with internal bleeding.

“This is two and a half weeks after [Drew’s] injury,” said Belichick. “It will probably be another week and a half before he can resume, I shouldn’t say resume, but do any type of substantial activity and then we will just have to take it from there.”

“I don’t have any predictions on what is going to happen or how it is going to go, but that is kind of the timeframe that we are looking at now. Somewhere in that vicinity, another week and a half before he can start doing some light physical work.”

Belichick had hoped to have Bledsoe back sooner, but unfortunately he’s had to simply take it one day at a time and for now that means he’ll have to wait a little longer.

“I think that was maybe my hope [he would be back sooner]. My medical degree has been withdrawn,” laughed Belichick. “I just said that I would update the information as I received it and that’s where we are at right now.”
