Pats to put Gunner Olszewski on IR to make room for Isaiah Wynn

The Patriots need a roster spot for left tackle Isaiah Wynn, and they appear to have found it.

According to Mike Reiss of ESPN.com, the Patriots plan to put wide receiver/special teamer Gunner Olszewski on injured reserve.

He’s been dealing with ankle and hamstring issues, and hasn’t played since Week Eight.

The need for Wynn is more acute, as getting one of their better blockers back on the field could help an offense that hasn’t performed to expectations.

Wynn has been practicing after recovering from a Week Two toe injury, and if activated, would be eligible to play this week against the Cowboys.

  1. Bitter sweet news happy for Wynn at the same time I feel bad for gunner, kid is tough as nails and played every down like it was his last! us real fans wont forget you !

  2. With Gronk not coming out of retirement, Wynn’s inability to stay healthy, and the team having no solid running game, this will be the perfect recipe for disaster against playoff contenders. The offense is not getting better and it’s almost December. The defense can’t carry this load every single game.

  3. Good.

    Now the Brady Fanboys can stop with the excuses regarding some inconsistent play from Newhouse.

    Brady’s issues are not only tied to that, people.

    Lack of accuracy, bad playcalling, the Binky Addiction, etc. It’s the exact same problem they had last year or the year before when Brady would wait for Cooks to run 25 yards downfield on every plays being hit the most of his career.

    Playcalling is vital. This year, he and McDaniels have been horrible.

    Apology? I don’t write for any publications that reported that at the beginning of year and had it wrong.

    Thanks.

    No one seriously believed Gronk was un-retiring. Wynn has been healthy for more than a month — by rule, he had to miss 8 weeks when he was placed on IR. He’s a dramatic upgrade at LT and everything from run-blocking to protection is about to turn a corner.

    That said, Brady made some *terrible* throws on Sunday. He has to get his act together.

    This offense looks horrible, though. It’s 2006 all over again. His receivers aren’t generating enough separation. There are times I’ve watched them play this season that they looked almost as ineffective as Trubisky and the Bears’ offense. If they’ve had no success running the ball this season, why do you think the return of Wynn, who is just one lineman, will be the major difference maker? They still can’t run the ball on the right side or up the middle. David Andrews, James Develin, and Trent Brown were so valuable. With Wynn, there’s always something that comes up with injuries. If he can’t stay healthy, this should be his last season on the Patriots.

    Cute.

    But, as per usual, your jealousy of my knowledge has backfired for you. LOL

    He can return vs Philly after the Bye.

    Thank you for being an honest Pats. Nothing worse than a slobbering Brady FanBoy who thinks he never has a bad game or shouldn’t be held accountable.

    I am glad Brady went to work today after the team got the day off, so at least he’s ticked off enough at himself.

    This same thing happened last year where the D was carrying the O past Sept throughout the year, until late in the year. They won’t be as good of a running team, but they have a chance to be a better passing team this postseason, which is what people are missing.

    This makes no sense. It was the general report at beginning of the year when he got hurt. Talk to the people who got it wrong, originally. They didn’t account for the Bye Week, apparently, so talk to them. I was simply going by memory, which mine is VASTLY superior to yours anyway. Get over it and your insecurity.

    I am not jealous of any homer Brady bozo.

  10. You guys do all this doomsday analysis every year. Patriot fans are getting the duck boats ready for the championship parade. You losers in the 31 other cities just suck it up. We can’t keep this up forever. You may have only 5 or 6 years to wait. Be patient.

    OH Yea, Play call is so bad the Pats are 9-1. I’m sure your team would kill for that record.

    You seem to have forgotten the rule was quoted and even linked for you before your rant.
    Really, sometimes you should just man up. It doesn’t hurt credibility, very much the opposite.

    AB as I said 2 months ago back next week Most legal problems should be cleared up by Monday

    This is what’s so aggravating. There was a time earlier this season when their receiving corps looked stacked. They had Demaryius Thomas, Antonio Brown, Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, Phillip Dorsett, and both of their starting tight ends healthy. While it’s not bad with N’Keal Harry, Meyers, Edelman, Dorsett, and Sanu, most of us aren’t quite sure what to think of Harry after only one game. They could really use a veteran like Antonio Brown right now, especially with a 42-year-old quarterback.

  14. “most of us aren’t quite sure what to think of Harry after only one game.”

    He caught 3 out of 4 that were tossed his way including one where Brady was running for his life. I think its a good start but he will have to steadily improve to merit his draft status.

    IMO the play calling has to be by design.

    Not wanting to tip their top plays prior to playoffs.

    This is wrong. This is what you do on D, not O. You actually want teams having to prepare for more sequences on O, since it’s an offensive based league.

    Note how when Brady has only 2 binkies he actually struggles. It didn’t matter if it was postseason Welker/Moss or Welker/Gronk or Edelman/Gronk, when he doesn’t actually look for a 3rd or 4th option to “show” early in a game, defenses know about Brady’s Binky Addiction.

    It’s been a problem since he got spoiled with the toys since 2007. When he actually uses the X spot, and turns to the left to throw to that side, it helps him as well.

    If he’s just staring to the strong side or middle, short all the time, it doesn’t work.

    They have arguably the best WR/RB group as a hole in the conference. It’s ridiculous to claim otherwise. Only KC is better, really.

    Demarius Thomas is done.

    Brady said he loves Sanu, NE tried to draft him and trade for him in the spring, etc, so they have the horses.

    Dorsett has been good, when targeted and used. Note how Dorsett has vanished since Sanu arrived. That’s a problem.

    Give everyone a target early in the game, so the D can see everyone WILL be used. The first drive of the Giants game before they got stoned on the 4th down is a good example.

  17. Wasted roster spot that could of been addressed much sooner.

    Patriots should pull a Player from any Practice Squad/Unsigned Agent out there that can help the Offense.

    I was going to rebut one of your posts, but then I realized every single one on this thread is dumber than the rest. Phony fake/pretend Pats fan who has never seen a game and makes up facts.

    Anyone who describes Newhouses play as “inconsistent” or who thinks the Pats receiving and running back group are the “best in the conference” and near equal to KC has never seen a Pats game ever.
