The walking wounded. Injury updates...

By: Greg

By the middle of every season numerous players are bumped, bruised and hurt. This season many Patriots have gone down. Below is an update of what is happening on the injury front with the Patriots:
Matt Light (knee)- Has been out for four games. Expected back in the next few weeks. Although he is expected back he will not be handed his job back. Sebastiain Vollmer has been doing an excellent job while filling in for Light. Vollmer has shut down his opponents, like Joey Porter last week. BB said about Light getting his job back "Well deal with that situation when he comes back"

Straight Ahead Sammy Morris (knee): Morris went down with a knee injury a few games ago. He has been questionable for a few weeks. He has been limited in practice but is not walking with a limp any more. He is not expected back this week and will probably return week 11. When he does return, do not expect him to be back in the starting role because Maroney has been playing well of late.

Fred Taylor- Has not been ruled out for the season but it is a possibility. If he does come back it wont be until late. Taylor would be an excellent pick up down the stretch of the season when the Pats need to grind it out.

Dan Koppen- His status is unknown. He went down last game.

Jarvais Green- Green should be back in 2-3 weeks. Mike Wright filled in last week and did a honorable job.

Julian Edelman- Probably wont return for another few weeks. When he is back he gives the Pats another weapon in the slot and in the return game.

Johnathan Whilitie- Returned to practice on Wednesday: "I'm happy to be standing up here talking to ya'll right now because I was throwing up and sick a lot, but everything is fine now, and I'm ready to get back," he said.
