Oh boy. Brown AND Mason not spotted at practice, along with Wynn and Onwenu (COVID protocol).

Pats face the Texans but that's 4 starting OL not practicing today.

Gilmore trade grabbing the headlines but this is a much bigger deal. They can’t trot out 3-4 wholly new OL on Sunday. Already shuddering at the prospect of Herron/Cajuste at T, with Karras and ? at G. Hopefully it is the case that one or more of these guys re take the field by Friday.

LT: Herron
LG: Durant
C: Andrews
RG: Karras
RT: Cajuste

That's a line that's going to turn us into KC... and the Texans into the Buccaneers.

This o-line is going to get Mac Jones severely injured at some point due to just the cumulative effect of all these free run hits he is taking.

Holy smokes that is...underwhelming. They better be able to run the ball because if not, yeah, Mac could get killed.

Mills has been horrible so I'm thinking we're going to see an incredibly conservative offensive gameplan and wait for Mills to screw up. Harris could have like a "25 carries for 55 yards" line. But they'll gladly punt, play field position, and wait for turnovers.

Yup. This is a game they can win scoring 10. Not worried in the least about this week.

The only way I'm worried is if the OL can't block at all. This isn't exactly the '85 Bears defense they're facing, so if they have issues protecting even if a patch work OL that's the way they lose. That and Mac throwing 3 INTs.
That's why they're going to take the ball out of Mac's hands as much as they can. Run, run, and on third down run the draw.

I assume one reason today will clear things up is it's probably 2nd test day for the COVID guys.

I was tired of Brown being too injured to play last week in a game that we really needed him. This game is basically soft serve ice cream. If he can't strap em up when we have almost no OL I want him gone. His day to day calf strain has caused the biggest issue with our offense.

It has been his reputation forever and I worry he might not give a shit now that the Pats aren't exactly contenders.

There are reports that he had a setback last week which forced him to miss the game. He was practicing last week. Something had to have happened to make him to go full DNP the whole week.

I think rodderick nailed it. What happened last week is that we lost and are now 1-3.

Yeah, I don't think Trent Brown is faking an injury in a walk year. More likely... guys get hurt, guys have setbacks, particularly 6'8" 370lb guys.

I guess I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt but it’s still aggravating. Initially it was considered not serious so not sure what’s happened in the last 4 weeks. I get he’s a big dude and having his legs underneath him is really friggin important but there’s a part of me that thinks he should eat some bananas and get back on the field.

I don’t think it’s wise to overlook Houston. The Bills just outclassed them but the week before Mills looked half decent against a good Panthers D. I would love to see our backup OL play better than who’s been starting but I don’t find it likely.

This team can’t afford to overlook anyone at all.
