Early in the first quarter of the Patriots’ preseason game against the Detroit Lions, receiver Julian Edelman went down with a knee injury. Ian Rapoport later reported that Edelman suffered an ACL injury, and an MRI confirmed the news Saturday:
Burfict has been known to commit some questionable acts. His first fine in the NFL came when he hit Packers tight end Ryan Taylor in the groin.
Hits against defenseless receivers aren’t new for Burfict. Arguably his most infamous came on Antonio Brown in January of 2016. A pass went over Brown’s head, and Burfict swooped in with the helmet-to-helmet contact:
Burfict’s history probably won’t help him in his appeal.
The slate of games he would be missing would be against the Ravens, Texans, Packers, Browns, and Bills. It’s not the most daunting stretch of games, but it’s not exactly easy, either.
Another thing in his favor is that several of Hill’s catches Cheap Team Soccer Jerseys from last season were on scramble plays when Brees had to move around to either get away from the pass rush or just to buy more time to throw. Brees has now seen Hill sell out to make catches in those situations when he was just looking for someone to dump the ball off too, so I would assume Brees has a lot more confidence in him now. And Cheap Softball Jerseys when Brees has confidence in you, you see the ball coming your way a lot.
