Pats assistant Pepper Johnson coaching on crutches

Jerod Mayo, Pepper Johnson AP

The Patriots don’t just have tough players.

They have tough coaches, who are willing to work through the pain.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter notes that Patriots linebacker coach Pepper Johnson will be on crutches today on the sidelines, after suffering a torn quadriceps muscle.

Johnson apparently tore the muscle in practice last week, and had surgery this week to repair the damage.

    I adore Pep, he’s by far my favorite defensive coach on the Pats staff, and has been for years. I wonder if BB will list him on that HUUUUGE injury report he had going this week? Maybe not if he didn’t miss any practice. ;)

    He was a beast as a player and evidently not much has changed. Git’em Pep.

    That’s how NY Giants handle their business.

    Seems like all the Patriots do is scoop up Giants, past and present.
