    Re: Ron Brace will be placed on IR Monday

    Patriots defensive lineman Ron Brace’s season is likely over…

    (Ian R. Rapoport Herald)

    The Patriots defensive line depth has taken another blow. This time, it involves defensive end Ron Brace.


    The second-year end from Boston College has likely played his last down this season. Battling an elbow injury from Sunday’s win over Buffalo, Brace will almost certainly be placed on Injured Reserve on Monday, I’m told by a source.

    The reason the move will come on Monday is because linebacker Brandon Spikes is set to conclude his four-game suspension after the Patriots play the Dolphins tomorrow. Spikes is on an exempt list, which means he does not count toward the 53-man roster limit. So, Spikes goes back on the roster on Monday and Brace goes on IR.

    This ends a promising season for the 2009 2nd round pick, one that saw him start several games and emerge as a potential answer at defensive end. He made 23 tackles this season.

    It also gives the team even more depth issues at defensive line as Mike Wright and Myron Pryor have each missed more than a month with injuries.

    As if we weren't thin enough on the  D-line already. Oh well, next man up!

    Brace has been injured on and off all season from the beginning.  Hope this is not the case for his career.

    Mike Reiss MikeReiss Brace is mostly a two-down player, playing early downs in 3-4 alignment. His loss would hurt most against bigger, physical running teams.

    With Brace likely headed to IR, Pats hope Mike Wright -- out with a concussion since Nov. 21 -- can return. If not, some concerns on line.

    If true that's to bad.  He was making some progress, between injury's, this year.

    If Wright and Pryor are back then by all means rest Brace. Thank you for your contributions this season. You were being called a bust in sept. You have a future with the Pats if you improve at the same rate as you did this year.

    That people think Brace was a factor.

    About him going on IR? I'm not so flabbergasted.

    Wouldn't this point to good news for Wright?

    This is a big hit to our D line, I say thank god BB drafted Deadrick and groomed a project here or we would be an absolute pushover in the run game.

    What? How so? Brace is/was/and always will be, a non-factor.

    Assumption is that Spikes is taking Brace's spot

    Deadrick's in the doghouse big time. He's been placed on the reserved/suspended list. He most likely won't be back next season depending on what he did

    We need Pryor and Mike Wright to be ready to go.  Honestly this entire time I have been hoping for Wright to come back.  I think he's played half a season and still has the most sacks on the Pats.
