Injuries give rookies an opportunity to step out
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

(Foxboro-AP) -- The release of Lawyer Milloy and the injuries suffered by the Patriots defense in the first three weeks of the season is giving several rookies a chance to show what they can do.

One who took advantage of the opportunity yesterday was cornerback Asante Samuel, a fourth-round pick from Central Florida.  In what may have been the biggest play of yesterday�s 23-to-16 win over the Jets, Samuel picked off a Vinny Testaverde pass early in the fourth quarter and returned it 55 yards for a touchdown.

Another rookie defensive back, Eugene Wilson, started his second straight game at free safety.

First-round pick Ty Warren saw more action on the defensive line in yesterday�s game and Dan Klecko�who was also chosen in the fourth round of last April�s draft�saw his first action of the season on the defensive line and at linebacker.
