Belichick to keep course, despite injuries
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

(Foxboro-AP) -- Bill Belichick says he isnÔŅĹt going to let an injury-riddled roster drastically change his coaching philosophy or schemes.

The teamÔŅĹs injury report now includes twelve players. The Patriots head coach says the play of reserves will determine the teamÔŅĹs success while several starters sit on the sidelines.

New EnglandÔŅĹs defense has been particularly hard hit. Linebacker Rosevelt Colvin is out for the year with a fractured hip, while linebacker Ted Johnson and nose tackle Ted Washington will be on the sidelines indefinitely.

Another linebacker, Mike Vrabel, is doubtful with a broken right arm.

But Belichick says heÔŅĹs not ready to abandon altogether the teamÔŅĹs three-four defense.

After suffering a sprained left ankle Sunday, cornerback Ty Law says he will make every effort to play Sunday against the Redskins at FedEx Field.
