Danny Woodhead says he’s fine

Danny Woodhead AP

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.

    What a coincidence. I overheard some guys in Provincetown last weekend saying the same thing about him!

    Good player but everytime he makes a play and is sitting on the ground with thay smile on his face i cant help but think how he looks like a little 13 yr old boy out there.

    Why do they have a picture of Marky Mark with this story??

    Beware Haters,

    The Pats look very good. Even though Brady commented that his performance needed improvement he looks like he is going to have another typical Brady season. The defense looks much better and the Pats are developing a very potent pass rush.

    I don’t know why in a pre season game BB has Woody returning punts in the 4th quarter?

    He didn’t return a punt, he was covering one.

    Got blindsided as he tried to tackle the returner.

    Straight up dirty hit buy a guy trying to make the team….

    Bet Rex Ryan would like to have the release of Woodhead back…

    This is why they shouldn’t let 12 years olds on this site. Wodhead has more balls when he’s sleeping than this clown does at his best.

    That’s because he plays with the enthusiasm of a kid. “Good” player? You wish he was still on your Jets.

    For all you clowns getting on Suh for being “dirty”, watch this play and you’ll see what “dirty” is.

    Friday?

    Wow pats are so good, they are 2-0 in preseason, give em the trophy now!

  10. jetsarestacked says: Aug 19, 2011 9:17 AM

    Rex wants the release of woodhead back? Nah. Last I checked little woodhead didn’t do squat against the jets in the playoffs. Besides, he didn’t really fit in the jets style of play on offense.

    I see richm2256 is still not over the schooling I gave him yesterday…..

    Woodhead tried to pull a Big Baby and get back up after a hit and wobble around.

    The thing I hated most about this play (and a lot of the second half) is the obvious non call that should have been made against TB. That was a helmet to helmet hit.
    There were a bunch of other plays that TB got away with things that I hope in the regular season get called correctly (I think they were just not calling things and making up calls against the Patriots to get Tampa Bay back into the game).
    But do the Patriots look ready to be a front runner again or what?

    BB says he’s fine???
    (looks for Woodhead’s obituary in the paper)

    Really? Did you say something witty or intelligent yesterday?

    I just saw your usual drivel.

    @ayerwave: yeah, ’cause there’s so much enthusiasm in the NFL these days, right?

    This, from a “Dream Team” Super Bowl-bound Eagles fan, of all people.

    How’s Mike Vick’s “reads” doing?

    we all k now the Patriots have no chance against the “Dream Team”

  19. nickster2k says: Aug 19, 2011 10:26 AM

    probably not the last concussion this “kid” will have. someday someone will be spoon-feeding him his mushy food

  20. comeonnowguys says: Aug 19, 2011 10:43 AM

    He bounced up immediately

    I wouldn’t call that “bounced” or “immediately.”

  21. cliverush says: Aug 19, 2011 10:47 AM

    The Bucs were head hunting late in the game. When are these guys going to realize that it is a part of the game from a bygone era. If a guy who has nochance to make the team is let loose to head hunt, who pays the fine?

  22. o37garcia says: Aug 19, 2011 11:00 AM

    pftwstbshmc: stop crying, the bucs had like over 10 penalties.. thats not help from the refs, the guy got lit up.. its football, they dont get paid all that money for two hand touch, that new kickoff rule is already ridiculous enough!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. contraryguy says: Aug 19, 2011 11:16 AM

    on the bright side, if he takes that career-ending hit, he can go back to work at Modell’s

  24. hobartbaker says: Aug 19, 2011 11:44 AM

    Entering his fourth season, Danny wishes the vets would stop making him fetch their dirty smelly running shoes every day. The rookie hazing thing has gone on long enough.

    The sad truth is your postings would have to improve by 200% just to get to the “drivel” level.

    Richm, you’re acting pretty butt hurt this morning. CVS run out of Midol?
    Relax, the big bad posters didn’t mean to insult your “man crush”.

    That’s what happens when you play preseason games like the Super Bowl. Guys getting hit by guys who won’t even be playing — when he shouldn’t have been in the game to begin with. I love how their fans are bragging about the scores in their two preseason games. No one else is taking these games all that seriously, except from an evaluation standpoint. You would have thought the Patriots had money on the line to score 30 points or more in a half every preseason game.
