Patriots running back Danny Woodhead put together an excellent performance Friday night, with 63 yards on five carries.
He was surprisingly still in the game in the fourth quarter, when he took a vicious hit returning a punt. He bounced up immediately, but was clearly wobbly and had to be held up by teammates.
In typical Patriots fashion, Woodhead said after the game, “I feel fine.”
“I saw him in the locker room and he seemed OK,” Bill Belichick said via Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com.
Even if Woodhead did suffer a concussion, we probably won’t know about it. The Patriots big names mostly avoided injury in the game. Linebacker Dane Fletcher left with a thumb injury and special teamer/safety Bret Lockett was carted off with a groin problem.
