The New England Patriots are playing against the Houston Texans on Sunday. NFL analysts have predicted a game for head coach Bill Belichick and his team. But, most fans are interested in cornerback Stephon Gilmore and his status for the Texans game. The veteran cornerback sustained a knee injury Oct. 29 and had to miss at least three games. However, in his first media availability, Gilmore provided an update on his health condition. Will he join his teammates in Week 11?
Of course. Gilmore took to his Instagram stories to confirm he will be traveling to Texas. The photo he uploaded features his feet and football gear. Gilmore doesn’t play his best football this season, but he is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year. New England needs his talent and his veteran experience will be of great help for young cornerbacks.
New England has won two straight games, and they are off to Houston. The Texans play terribly, and this only increases the chances for Bill Belichick to win the game.
Gilmore missed his team and it was definitely hard for him to see his teammates win games without him. Patriots players have won two of the last three games, and this only shows their readiness to enter the playoff picture. The win over Houston will bring them closer to the playoffs.
Stephon Gilmore excited about Texans game
The veteran has put his home on the market and this sparkled yet another controversy. Gilmore has been part of too many trade rumors and putting his home on sale added fuel to the fire. The cornerback put an end to the rumors, saying that he just wanted to move to the city. Gilmore is happy with his current team, and he is definitely happy with his teammates. New England has a lot of young players on the roster, and Gilmore is super excited about their improvement.
The Patriots made a few changes, and Belichick seems to be satisfied with his work on the roster. The team was plagued with injuries and wideout Julian Edelman is still out. He will probably return in the next couple of weeks.
