It looks like the Patriots are going to lose a linebacker. To a season-ending injury in their game vs the 49ers. The Patriots are very much in a bad place right now. Unless they get it figured out soon, they might find themselves in a hole to big to get out of. It started when the Patriots were hit with a couple of positive COVID-19 tests.
But Bill Belichick has tried to stay positive and say that the team is still working on getting back on track. Take a look at what he said recently.
“Today’s an important day in our preparation for the Broncos,” Belichick said. “We’ve had several days now of virtual meetings between the staff members and from the staff to the players. We’ve been able to cover a lot of things, but we haven’t spent any time together. So today’s our opportunity to do that. We look forward to that. One thing that we’ve learned this year repeatedly has been we have to be ready. Adjust and adapt to changes and modifications and the way we do things and, in some cases, decisions that really come down to a very short amount of time that we have to be ready to adjust to.”

“So we’re certainly taking things day by day — probably hour by hour would be more accurate. We’ll just see how we progress. Then as we find out more on our end, or if there are other things externally that we can’t control that, then we’ll deal with those as they come. That’s the way it’s been all year. I think our team and our players have done a good job of handling those adjustments, and we’ll continue to do that.”
Now it looks like the Patriots have even more trouble. Linebacker Brandon Copeland could be out for the season.
This is a huge loss for an already depleted Patriots team. The defense was the bright spot on this team and now even that might take a turn for the worst.
How do you think this will impact the Patriots going forward?
