Workout Limits Pain Bill Belichick

Davis_Thomas (Hot Read) 131224 [203x114] From 2000-06, there was an average of 239 players on IR. That average has jumped to about 314 over the past seven years. The low over that span was 192 in 2001, with the high being 353 in 2010, but that was before the new offseason rules came into effect. As of Monday, there were 288 players on IR, the lowest total (source) since 287 in 2008. Those figures, however, don't include players who have been on injured reserve and released by their teams during the season. It has also been difficult to measure how many regulars have missed games because of injury. The Patriots (11-4) have been beset by a rash of injuries to key contributors this season. They have six starters on IR, including tight end Rob Gronkowski (right knee), offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer , linebacker Jerod Mayo , defensive lineman Vince Wilfork (Achilles tendon) and safety Adrian Wilson . Belichick insists injuries are up.
