Multiple members of the Patriots press corps are reporting via their Twitter feeds that New England coach Bill Belichick has said that the absence of receiver Randy Moss from practice on Friday was “wasn’t injury related.”
But Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald points out that Moss, whose name has not appeared on the team’s injury report this week, has been “hobbling around the locker room with bags of ice on his knee all week.”
So if Randy didn’t practice for reasons other than injury, why in the hell did he miss a key practice in advance of a key game in a single-elimination tournament?
Rapoport points out that Belichick said his players will be available for interviews later today. But if Moss says anything other than “no comment” or “next question” or “straight cash, homey,” we’d be shocked.
