Patriots Injury Report: Dominique Easley Absent; Rob Ninkovich Hurt Heel

FOXBORO, Mass. — Dominique Easley was healthy enough to play in the New England Patriots’ 23-14 win over the San Diego Chargers Sunday night but his knee still kept him out of practice. Easley and running back LeGarrette Blount were the lone Patriots players who didn’t participate in practice Wednesday. Blount’s absence wasn’t injury related. Blount met with a judge in...

Diminished role for Rob Ninkovich?

As a Patriots fan, I was completely humbled by Sunday's 33-20 loss to the Miami Dolphins. When I return back to Florida, I am sure that I will hear it from the fans down there. However, I will keep my head high and know that the Pats will not play like this again. After the devastating loss, I wasn't the only person humbled after yesterday's game. Rob Ninkovich, the Patriots...

Rob Ninkovich Sees Diminished Role In Patriots’ Week 1 Loss

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Rob Ninkovich missed just 52 total defensive snaps for the New England Patriots in 2013. He was on the bench for nearly that many plays in the Patriots’ Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. It was shocking to see Ninkovich spend so much time traveling between the sideline and the field in the Patriots’ 33-20 season-opener loss. He was a borderline...

Female Friday: Reliable Rob Ninkovich Has His Own Rock At Home

Here’s a little insight into how Ninkovich is always on such an even keel. Meet his wife, Paige Popich. The two have been together since Rob’s rookie season...

Rob Ninkovich: NFL Prospects’ Pro Days ‘More Media Oriented’ Now

The NFL has changed since Rob Ninkovich held his Purdue pro day on March 10, 2006. There were no bells and whistles at Ninkovich’s audition for NFL scouts eight years ago, just “a bunch of teams trying to make me throw up,” the defensive lineman said Tuesday at Gillette Stadium. President George H.W. Bush attended top quarterback prospect Johnny Manziel’s televised pro...

Should the New England Patriots target a defensive end in the NFL Draft?

Chandler Jones and Rob Ninkovich dominated both edges of the defensive line over the course of the 2013 season. Surprising play-maker Ninkovich continually displays a unique knack for ball-hawking year after year. Jones, who was the 21st pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, has arisen as top-tier pass rusher in the NFL. While Jones displayed poor judgement at times this season, his high level...

Rob Ninkovich Deserves Pro Bowl Recognition, but Patriots Defensive End’s Value Cannot Be Seen in Traditional Stats

FOXBORO, Mass. – Rob Ninkovich‘s name has not been mentioned very often when it comes to Pro Bowl voting, but it should. There’s an obvious reason the New England Patriots defensive end continues to go unrecognized, and it’s his lack of sacks. Ninkovich has just seven sacks on the season, despite playing nearly every down, but it is excusable. Ninkovich has been asked to...
