Patriots DL Ron Brace was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list earlier in the season to great expectations. Yet, it hasn’t quite materialized.
Brace has been active for five games, but he has just two tackles. The Boston College product has slowly been working into the lineup, but his contributions haven’t been steady.
To Brace, who had no preseason, it’s not a surprise.
“It’s pretty much what I expected,” Brace said. “I know I’m going to have to work my way into more playing time and it’s pretty much what I expected. It’s going to be a hard road, it’s a road I’m going to have to take, so I knew that’s what I was going to have to do. Just do it, you know?”
