Hey Raider Nation,
I was looking at the injury report at www.nfl.com/teams/newenglandpatriots/injuries?team=NE , and there are several things which make me go, hmmm, but I don't know enough about these particular match ups to know what plays into our hands, and I'm going to depend on you other Raider faithful to tell me what this stuff could possibly mean...
Logan Mankins G (Did not participate)- Illness
Sebastian Vollmer OT (Did not participate)- Back
Mike Wright DE (Did not participate)- Concussion
Aaron Hernandez TE(Did not participate)- sprained MCL likely out 2 weeks, (2nd week of which being this sunday)
Dan Koppen C- OUT fractured ankle 6 weeks or more minimum
Patrick Chung S – (limited participation)broken thumb, may play in cast, underwent surgery, cast = hard if not impossible to intercept
Albert Haynesworth DT – (limited participation)out last week with back injury, backs are finicky to say the least, could go either way….
These are a HOST of others (again check link) 9 in total that had limited participation in practice with various ailments. To me this looks like more than your average injury list, looks to me like these guys are getting hurt left and right....
