Jarvis Green Out Till December

Tom Curran notes that Jarvis Green is out till December after undergoing knee surgery.

Was Green hurt in practice? Seems strange that he'd have surgery after the bye.

The Patriots won't miss a beat, given their depth, like Seymou...oh.......

never mind.

There's always the veteran savvy of guys like Brusch--I mean Vrabe-- um, hem, haw, how's the weather in Minnesota these days, Will?

Maybe we'll finally have a Ron Brace sighting.

Problem is, doesn't Green play predominantly end, and Brace was more of an inside guy being groomed to possibly replace Wilfork?

I was under the impression that the Pats were playing Green-Wilfork-Warren when in the 3-4, and Green-Wright-Wilfork-Warren when in the 4-3 (or maybe Burgess-Wright-Wilfork-Warren when Burgess puts his hand down). Brace was intended to be rotating on the inside, where Wright and Wilfork play. Pryor has been rotating in on the outside, and probably will see his playing time spike even more with Green out.

Any particular reason this gets an XP point link and not Nate Clements and Joe Staley both being out 6-8 weeks? It seems a bit silly to even bring it up but the Niners injuries this past week will likely have a much larger impact on the team than Jarvis Green being out.

Yeah, especially considering that Mike Wright had pretty much replaced Green already.

Or Sedrick Ellis's injury? Anyone wonder why Michael Turner went for 150 last night?

Not after seeing him spin his way out of a group of like five defenders. That's just bad tackling.

by Sophandros :: Tue, 11/03/2009 - 5:02pm

That's one run. The lack of penetration last night really hurt.

Interestingly that's the only thing she didn't ever say
