Several injured Patriots walked through the locker room today, including Jarvis Green, Matt Light, Sammy Morris, and Steve Neal. Here’s a quick rundown:
-Morris said that Sunday he was “for the most part” a game-time decision. He said his knee, which has kept him sidelined since he left the Titans game in Week 6, should be feeling better than it did last week.
“It’s only been a couple days,” Morris said. “But I think so. It’s about the same. Just take it as it comes, and I’ll know as the week goes.”
The buildup surrounding Monday night, Morris said, would not serve as any extra motivation to come back.
“It’s any game,” Morris said. “I think all the side stuff is from the outside. It’s just as important as any week.”
-Neal said he’s “day-to-day.” He left the Colts game with a head injury.
-Green has missed three games since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his knee during the Patriots bye week. He was questionable for the Jets game last Sunday and is optimistic about his return. He said he’s been most busy sorting through ticket requests. Green, who is from Donaldsville, La. and played at LSU, has never played in New Orleans as a pro.
“I would think it’s special for everybody to go back home and play,” Green said.
-Light offered no update as he walked into the trainer’s room, aside from wishing one reporter a Happy Thanksgiving.
-Also, safety Patrick Chung, who left the game Sunday with a head injury before returning, said he plans on playing Monday night. “It’s not a question,” Chung said.
