NFL Injury Report:
The New England Patriots were able to rally late against the
Buffalo Bills Sunday despite the absences
of tight end Aaron Hernandez
receiver Julian Edelman
. While he was able to start Sunday’s game, linebacker Dont’a
Hightower exited the contest after sustaining a hamstring injury.
Edelman enters week 5 as questionable. He missed Sunday’s
game against the Bills after a hand injury forced him to sit out a full week of
Hernandez has been out since week 2 when he sustained an
ankle injury during the Patriots’ loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It’s unclear
when the 22-year-old will be able to return for the Patriots, but there’s a
chance he’ll suit up for this Sunday’s contest against the Denver Broncos.
Hightower sustained his injury while recording a sack
against Buffalo. It caused him to exit the game, but he’s reportedly doing
better and isn’t expected to be sidelined Sunday.

Aaron Hernandez back at practice, to return against Seattle?
Albert Breer reports that looks like the target.
Pregame work for NE-DEN — Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez is a virtual certainty to miss the Bronco game, I’m told, but could be back for Wk 6.

And more good news is that Hernando was back at practice today. Report from Jeff...
Terrell McClain, we hardly knew ye. The Panthers' 2011 third-round pick stuck around in New England even shorter than he was in Carolina. Tom Curran from CSNNE.com tweeted that McClain was released on Tuesday by the Patriots. Pats release defensive lineman Terrell McClain. 3rd-round choice in 2011 (Carolina), McClain was signed last week. #PatriotsTalk — Tom E. Curran (@tomecurran...
Devin McCourty's 2011 season was a cause for concern. The same cornerback who was selected to the Pro Bowl during his rookie season just a year earlier had suddenly forgotten how to play the position. While the whispers of McCourty's struggles began to grow into rumblings at the end of last season, aided by his eventual switch to safety by season's end, they echoed even...
As explosive as New England's offense was during its second-half surge against Buffalo on Sunday, the Patriots defense might have been the ringleader for the quick turnaround.
While quarterback Tom Brady was busy orchestrating another patented comeback, leading the offense to 580 total yards of offense and 45 second-half points, New England's defense actually ignited the...
Patriots wide receiver Brandon Lloyd is doing the #85 jersey PROUD this season. In just four games, Lloyd has 25 receptions for 287 yards and this PICTURE PERFECT touchdown.
Looks like that playbook is NOT as DIFFICULT as the former #85 Ochocinco Chad Johnson claimed.
I wonder if Chad Johnson just closes his eyes and PRETENDS that’s him.
Thanks for the 15 catches last year.
Comparing anyone to the Giants Jason Pierre-Paul just isn’t fair. And Patriots DE Chandler Jones is not quite in that class in terms of physical gifts yet, he is getting closer. Jones is close because of his incredibly long frame and arms, smooth movement skills and the natural strength to anchor or bull rush against bigger men. He has been extremely impressive thus far as a pass...

After Further Review: Are the Patriots a running team? Or just a smart one? - NFL - CBSSports.com...
The NFL announced Thursday that defensive end Chandler Jones was named defensive rookie for the month of September. Jones started every game this season and recorded 17 tackles, three sacks, and two forced fumbles. The rookie was selected 21st overall in this past draft and shows to be a promising part of the Patriots' defense.
Chandler Jones never seems satisfied.
The New England Patriots rookie defensive end made an immediate impact in his first professional game four weeks ago, recording five tackles and a strip-sack that was recovered for a touchdown. Not enough.

Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez Will Most Likely Miss Week 5 -
According to NFL.com, Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle) is a “virtual certainty” to miss Sunday’s game against the Broncos. Hernandez missed practice Wednesday. NFL.com reports that Hernandez has a shot to be ready for the Week 6 game in Seattle, but notes that “would be a quick recovery” from a high ankle sprain...
Unlike the past two weeks there isn’t much of a negative story line with the Patriots following their 52-28 win over the Bills on Sunday. The defense generated a pass rush and limited the third-best running attack in the league to only 98 yards rushing. They also forced four interceptions, including two by Devin McCourty who was the major topic of discussion last week. Wes Welker...
So today, we are going to get into three hot button issues facing the Patriots currently. As always, follow me @CultOfBelichick-Tavon Wilson or Steve Gregory, who should get more snaps? So, I touched on this a little bit yesterday here, but I think this topic needs to be taken into a little more detail. So far his snap count looks like this, starting from Week 1: 42 (rotation with...
