Patriots could lose Ty Warren for the season

Patriots defensive end Ty Warren, one of the most solid, underrated players in the game, could be lost for the season with a hip injury, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss. Warren has a labral tear (similar to what Yankee Alex Rodriguez had a while back). It is not career-threatening, but if surgery is required, Warren would be shelved for 2010.

If Warren, one of the premier run-defenders in the game, goes down, the Patriots would likely turn to another Warren: Gerard. The former Brown/Bronco/Raider is not experienced in a 3-4 scheme, but he has been challenging veteran Mike Wright for playing time all offseason.

On Tuesday, defensive line coach Pepper Johnson talked to Reiss about Warren’s value to the Patriots. "The things that he does for the people around him and us, it goes unspoken," Johnson said. "He is a strong character in the locker room. He is a strong character in our meetings. He's a stand-up guy. He's a guy that if he misses a play, or if he blows a play out there on the field, he stands up and says 'that was me and that's not going to happen again.' You can't have enough of those type of guys out on the field."

UPDATE: The Patriots have put Warren on Injured Reserve, ending his 2010 season. They have also reinstated end/outside linebacker Derrick Burgess, which means the veteran is not retiring after all.

UPDATE II: Warren explained his decision to Tom Curran of CSNNE.com: "It was something that I wanted to get done -- that I needed to get done. I've been laboring around for about a year-and-a-half. The season's too long to be taking shots all year, to feel OK one week and feel bad the next. To have arthritis and not be able to be me. I'm going to sacrifice one year for the next couple."

All terrorists ARE Muslim.
You must have been reading the Rush Limbaugh book again.   What a doofus.  Even Rush isn't stupid enough to know that's not true.  You people are amazing.

"All terrorists ARE Muslim."


Wow. Timothy McVeigh anybody?  That's a pretty prejudiced statement.  Or what about the white guy who flew his plane into an FBI office??  His actions were rather "terrorist" like.  I've known PLENTY of muslims who were not violent in the least bit.


"As far as the victory shrine...I mean mosque, just because Bloomberg is an idiot and an appologist for a religion dripping in blood and murder doesn't mean that 80%  of New Yorkers are wrong."


Granted, I accept there is a certain degree of in-sensitivity....However, you forget we live in AMERICA.  Where we have FREEDOM OF RELIGION (and the freedom to practice it as we see fit)  To dis-allow them to practice their religion as they want, is UN-American. 


And for background reference, I'm non-religious and my mother used to work in the Twin Towers, so the whole situation does hit home quite hard for me.  However, I tend to look at the BIG picture, and refuse to let petty prejudices influence my ideals.


As for the Patriots, they'll still be good either way, but I hope the Jets kick their a$$!!

What do you not understand about that?

As far as the victory shrine...I mean mosque, just because Bloomberg is an idiot and an appologist for a religion dripping in blood and murder doesn't mean that 80%  of New Yorkers are wrong.

That's the 80% who think it is an evil idea to allow the terrorist religion to build a trophy rack next to its murder site.

And yes, NY did not build a football stadium in its city probably because it knew with a salary cap they would just be mediocer at best.

Its a shame when fans rejoice with injuries


Yes, the Patriots are one of those teams in the league where if you are not a fan, you prob. disdain immensely. Whether it stems from the Spy-gate incident or from the fact that they were one of the dominant teams this past decade, the Patriots often generate dislike among other fans.

But it is REALLY pathetic to cheer, be happy, revil in excitement over an injury. You don't want to root for the Patriots? Fine, no problem. But being happy over an injury is ridiculous. You know what? Eli Manning could be lost for the year in his next pre-season game, and the Giants will be stuck with Jim Sorgi. I am sure you'll be thrilled when fans come on and say "Tragic, I'll keep my glee to a minimum"
