linebacker Tedy Bruschi was concerned about the New England Patriots and their
decision to rest N’Keal Harry for the game against the Baltimore Ravens. Bruschi
said that the Patriots may not like their first-round pick and the game he
plays on the field. Well, Harry has yet to make his debut with the Patriots,
and he may join his team in their game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach
Bill Belichick provided an update on his rookie receiver. Sort of.
activated right on time for the game against the Ravens, but he was inactive on
the game day. Why did he sit out this game?
According to Belichick, the Patriots will activate the players that give the team the best chance to defeat the Eagles. When asked about Harry, Belichick didn’t provide a lot of details.
“We’ll activate the players we feel give us the best chance to compete against the Eagles,” Belichick said.
Belichick is satisfied with Harry
The head coach said that Harry goes out every day and tries to get better. He is done a really good job on the field, and has worked really hard. Belichick also mentioned that Harry has improved like all of the players on the team. That’s what the coach expects from his players. He even said that Harry is a lot better than he was earlier in the year and two weeks ago.
“Go out there every day and try to get better. He’s done a good job of that. He’s worked hard, he’s improved like all of our players have that are out there working. That’s what we expect, but he’s done a good job of that. He’s a lot better than he was earlier in the year and two weeks ago.”
New England has an issue of a numbers game at wide receiver. Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu and Phillip Dorsett will be active in the game against the Eagles. The Patriots will have to make a choice and choose between Harry and rookies Jakobi Meyers and Gunner Olszewski. In Week 9, the Patriots activated Meyers. Olszewski was recovering from his injuries. Meyers played one snap when Dorsett was banged up. Special teamer Matthew Slatter belongs to this mix, and the Patriots won’t dress seven wide receivers for their match.
Will Harry play? New England has to check out Harry and his contribution to the game. He is a first-round pick after all, and has the size New England needs on the field.
The game against
the Eagles is really important for Brady, and he will try to make up for the
Super Bowl loss.
