McCourty may still be in the concussion protocol

Patriots safety Devin McCourty didn’t practice during the team’s bye week workouts after suffering a concussion in Week 17 against the Jets Derek Watt Jerseys Stitched , but things took a step in the right direction on Wednesday.According to multiple reports from New England, McCourty was on the field and working during the open portion of the team’s first practice session of the week. but the fact that he’s working at this point would bode well for clearing it in time to play against the Chargers.Good health was the order of the day for the Patriots. Tight end Dwayne Allen, who has been dealing with a knee injury, was also on the field and every player in the roster took part in practice in some capacity.The exact capacities will be listed on the team’s injury report when it’s released later on Wednesday Youth Mike Williams Jerseys , but it doesn’t look like there will be big injury issues for the Patriots to deal with this week.The Chargers Aren’t Actually That Interested in Antonio Gates In the wake of Hunter Henry’s devastating ACL injury on the first day of offseason team activities, it was prognosticated that the Chargers would have no choice but to bring back tight end Antonio Gates. That was two months ago.Gates remains unsigned and, largely, uncourted by any NFL teams.The Chargers have been the only team that has given any indication of interest in Gates’ services.These comments, however Mike Williams Jerseys Stitched , might have been smoke without fire.Antonio Gates is a Chargers legend.He has fans and he has records, and the Chargers would not be so tone deaf as to not comment on his possible return to the team.In June, team GM Tom Telesco wrote the following during a live chat on Chargers.com:This statement was a perfect blend of ego-brushing and non-commitment, the kind that GMs are hired for and expected to excel at to keep rumors alive but agents wondering.There have been a few more comments, very much identical in substance and tone Youth Dan Feeney Jerseys , but no real news has hit regarding the Chargers tight end plans for 2018.Make no mistake— the Chargers need help at TE.Hunter Henry was their future and their current plan, and those plans just received a nasty ACL monkey wrench to mess up the works.However, if we step back and look a little, this might actually be the Chargers being prudent.Antonio Gates is a legend, but legends are told after the fact.Gates has been largely a non-factor through his most recent 2-year contract.He received about 5.5 million per year through that extension Dan Feeney Jerseys Stitched , or $10,036 per yard in 2016 and $17,207 per yard in 2017.Signing Antonio Gates is only helpful in adding a little bit more depth to a stressed position and selling more merchandise at the team store.With a current cap room at 8.5 million, the Chargers actually have the upper hand.They could give Gates whatever it is that he is asking for— no doubt that the Bolts are negotiating more toward the veteran minimum of just over 1 million for a player of his stature.Gates is no doubt aiming closer to his last payday; I would assume around 4 million.It’s become a game of chicken, very much in the spirit of what the Steelers are experiencing with their star RB’s franchise deal.The difference is that the Chargers have a whole lot more flexibility Craig Mager Jerseys Stitched , as their entire offense does not center around this hole in the TE chart.As the clock ticks down toward the regular season, one of the sides will blink.I’m sure that the Chargers would love to have Gates back for 1 or 2 million—that’s basically a steal.Antonio Gates will have to decide if the toll on his body is worth playing at a discount compared to what he’s used to.- Jason “Tight Pockets” Michaels
