Patriots CB Devin McCourty gave everyone a pretty good scare against the Jets, staying down for several moments while separating his shoulder. To add context, I wrote about why it’s so difficult to come up with a timeline for the injury, as it would depend on his pain level.
Though he practiced Saturday, he was listed as doubtful for tonight’s game. With good reason.
The marathon week of preparation is almost over, and the Patriots and Chiefs will play tomorrow. But before they do, we still have some previewing to do. For that, we turn to G Logan Mankins and LB Rob Ninkovich. They looked forward to the Chiefs game and checked in on some other random topics. Check out my video:
When the Kansas City Chiefs come to town Monday Night, there will be a host of familiar faces that will be on hand. Scott Pioli, Romeo Crennel and Todd Haley have all worked with Belichick. Pioli worked here in New England as Belichick’s personnel man. Crennel and Haley both worked with Belichick with the New York Jets. Crennel also was Belichick’s defensive coordinator here...
Not all storylines this week involve Patriots who became Chiefs (like QB Matt Cassel and defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel). Some involve former Kansas City greats who are now Patriots. Like G Brian Waters. The veteran spent 10 years in KC, making five Pro Bowls and earning the respect of a community. Now, he’s doing so in New England.

Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty will not play Monday night against the Chiefs because of a separated shoulder.
Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes to Rob Gronkowski and the New England Patriots shook off a sluggish start to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 34-3 on Monday night. Julian Edelman returned a punt 72 yards for a touchdown and Kyle Arrington had two interceptions, helping the Patriots (7-3) increased their AFC East lead to two games.
