The New England Patriots are having their practice sessions, and players are working on the mistakes the team made in Houston. Head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady weren’t satisfied with the 28-22 loss, obviously, and TB12 couldn’t even hide his emotions. He was upset and even gave his receivers a good lesson on the sidelines. New England made a lot of changes to the receiving unit and lost key players. Josh Gordon and Antonio Brown are out, and these two played really well with Brady. When it comes to the quarterback, he is dealing with multiple ailments which may turn into a big problem for the team.
Brady was a full participant in Wednesday’s session, but he has another injury to take care of. The quarterback recovers from a toe injury, and he still tries to heal his elbow. Brady played through the elbow issue last week but was a full participant in every practice
The overall health condition of the Patriots’ roster has improved significantly after almost a dozen players missed sessions last week. The flu bug hit the Patriots locker room. Right tackle Marcus Cannon has yet to recover, and he was a limited participant Wednesday.
Brady isn’t the only Patriot plagued with ailments
Center Ted Karras (knee) and defensive lineman Byron Cowart
(head) both did not practice with the team.
Media members couldn’t see them in the
locker room during the team’s media availability period. If Karras doesn’t suit up for Sunday’s
game against the Chiefs, reserve James Ferentz will probably
start at center.
Here’s the full injury
report of the New England Patriots:
DID NOT PARTICIPATE
DL Byron Cowart, Head
OL Ted Karras, Knee
LB Ja’Whaun Bentley, Knee
OT Marcus Cannon, Illness
S Patrick Chung, Heel
WR Julian Edelman, Shoulder
CB Jason McCourty, Groin
WR Mohamed Sanu, Ankle
DE John Simon, Elbow
QB Tom Brady, Toe/Elbow
The Kansas City Chiefs are a big bite to
swallow, but we believe that Brady and his teammates are ready to win this
game. They lost two regular-season games, and Brady urges the offense to step
up. Hopefully, this motivation will be enough for the weak receiving unit.
