When asked today by the media for an injury update on Patriots' DE Chandler Jones' ankle, Bill Belichick gave a very vague statement that unfortunately didn't say much on Jones' status.
From ESPN Boston:
"We do the same thing with every player. Any players that are in for
treatment yesterday and today, well everybody was in yesterday, but the
guys who got treatment yesterday, the guys who came in for treatment
today, we'll take a look at them today, take a look at them tomorrow and
make a decision as to whether or not we think they can practice. If we
do, we'll put them out there, let them go through the early part of
practice, early stages, individual work, and see how that progresses and
make a decision as to whether or not to put them in the group or team
drills later on in practice. It's the same thing for every player
regardless. If they're not ready then they don't practice, or they
practice on a limited basis and if they...

Patriots coach Bill Belichick is providing no update on injured tight end Rob Gronkowski.
Belichick said during a conference call Monday that he had nothing to add to his comments following New England's 41-28 win over the Houston Texans in a divisional playoff game Sunday. He said then he wasn't sure if Gronkowski had broken his arm.
Gronkowski needs season-ending surgery...
The final minutes -- or just minute -- of each half will be at a premium when the New England Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens Sunday in the AFC Championship game. After jumping out to a pretty nice 17-3 lead with just over three minutes to go in the second quarter of a victory over the Houston Texans last week, the Patriots allowed the Texans to score 10 points inside the two...
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick announced on Monday that they will be adding former Chiefs OC Brian Daboll to their coaching staff.
This is very similar to what they did last year when they signed Josh McDaniels as an assistant after he was let go by the Rams.
Daboll spent time as the Patriots’ WRs coach for several years. He’s worked as an offensive coordinator for the...
Bill Belichick is 18-7 in the postseason and 5-2 in his career against the Baltimore Ravens.

Right around the time when Bill O’Brien was announced as the next head coach at Penn State last January, Josh McDaniels not so coincidentally made his return to the Patriots’ coaching staff. Might they be dealing with déjà vu, just one year later?

I'm not one for adorning my body with tattoos for the sports teams I love but hey, that's what works for some people. However, one New England Patriots fan might want to reconsider his decision to feature this tattoo of Pat the Patriot on his body canvas.
There's bad tattoos and then there are BAD tattoos, this one is HORRENDOUS. First off, it looks like Pat...
BOSTON — When Doc Rivers leaves the basketball arena or practice court, he passes straight into the realm of fandom. With the Celtics, Rivers is a rational individual who understands that winning and losing has everything to do with the gameplan and execution, and nothing to do with whether he wears his lucky tie or took the same route to work as he did the last time the Celtics...
Looks like the script was handed out immediately after the win last night. Check this out:Jerod Mayo: “Great team. These are the two teams that deserve to go to the AFC Championship Game, Baltimore and us. They are a great team, a lot of good players on both sides of the ball. It will be a challenge for us.” Nate Solder: “[The Ravens] are a great team. They beat two tough...
