One of the troubling footnotes for the Patriots following Sunday’s stunning loss to the Seahawks relates to the health, or lack thereof, of receiver Brandon Lloyd.
Lloyd possibly emerged from a late-game reception with an upper body injury of some sort. In the aftermath, everyone has clammed up.
Here’s how Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com described the situation on Lloyd: “Receiver gets up slowly after making a catch late in the fourth quarter, but returns to game. He goes for tests afterward and walks out of the stadium stone-faced.”
It’s the Patriot Way to not give away any information about injured players prematurely. Even then, all we ever get is the absolute minimum. So we’ll wait for the Wednesday injury report for clues as to whether and to what extent Lloyd practices. And we’ll wait for Friday for an official label for Lloyd. And, ultimately, we’ll wait for Sunday as to whether he suits up and plays against the Jets.
