Injury-riddled Patriots may need reinforcements
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

(Foxboro-AP) -- Foxboro may not feel like a particularly victorious place today, even with the Patriots coming off a 23-to-16 victory over the New York Jets.

That�s because the team is in the midst of an injury epidemic.

The Patriots lost another key defensive starter yesterday when 365-pound nose tackle Ted Washington suffered a fractured left leg.  He joins linebacker Rosevelt Colvin�out for the season with a hip injury�and linebacker Ted Johnson�who is out until at least midseason with a broken foot.

Another linebacker, Mike Vrabel, suffered an arm injury in yesterday�s game and cornerback Ty Law hurt his right ankle, though Law later returned to the game.

The offense hasn�t been spared, either. Starting guard Mike Compton missed yesterday�s game with a foot injury and wide receiver David Patten left the game after hurting his knee.

Add to that quarterback Tom Brady�s elbow, which appears to be bothering him though he insists it�s nothing serious.

All this has fans wondering how long the team can keep winning.   New England is 2-and-1 and tied for first place in the A-F-C East with Buffalo and Miami. The Pats will be in Washington Sunday to play the Redskins.
