Bill Belichick Quiet On Status Of Patriots DE Chandler Jones
Head coach Bill Belichick was charactetistically mum in discussing any potential injury to rookie defensive end Chandler Jones. Jones did not play for much of the second half in New England's 41-28 victory over Houston on Sunday.
"We do the same thing with every player," Belichick said. "The guys that came in for treatment today, we'll take a look at them today, take a look at them tomorrow, make a decision as to whether or not we think they can practice. If we do, then we'll put them out there and let them go through the early part of practice, the warm-up stages, some individual work and see how that progresses and make the decision as to whether or not to put them in the group for team drills that come later on in practice. We do the same thing with every player in that category. If they're not ready, then they don't practice or they practice on a limited basis. If they're able to continue and do the things that all the other players doing, mainstream program players are doing, then they do that."

Yea Brady is always on it for a sore shoulder or some bullshit.
Jones would be a bigger loss than Gronk. The offense has enough weapons to overcome that. But the defense needs Jones to really get pressure on the quarterback.
