Jarvis Green Out til December

By: Greg

Its not all Rosy and green in New England, DE Jarvis Green had knee surgery and will be out until early December. Injured players are not allowed to talk to the media so he had no comment. Green has started all 7 games for the Pats and has 18 tackles thus far.

So what does this mean for the Patriots?

Mike the Price is Wright will take Greens place on the end. Wright has been a solid contributor so far this season. He leads the Pats in sacks with four and has 17 tackles as a super sub. Wright mostly plays D tackle but has seen more time at end this year.

"I've been playing a little bit more (over there) this year since (Richard) Seymour's gone, and Jarvis is over there," he said. "I'm kind of backing up Jarvis a little bit more. It's been good. I've been getting a lot of reps over there in games. It's been helping me out a lot. So I've been a lot more comfortable over there. But we'll see where they put me."

I'm the utility guy so wherever they want to put me, I'll be, and I'll be prepared,"

This hurts the Pats D line depth. Wright will move over to DE which means more time for Brace and Pryor the rookies at D Tackle. The Pats have only 5 D linemen but could put Tully Banta Cain on the line on passing downs.
