The 2017 squad, which reached the Super Bowl but came up just short, saw core players like Julian Edelman, Dont’a Hightower, Marcus Cannon and Nate Ebner go down with season-ending injuries. The Patriots’ 2018 team, on the other hand, suffered comparatively minor losses on route to winning Super Bowl 53.At least that’s what it seems.Advanced statistics website Football Outsiders recently published its breakdown of 2018’s injury data to find out how teams compare to the rest of the league Womens Montee Ball Jersey , and to their own versions from a year prior. When it comes to the Patriots, we can see that their championship team was actually not as healthy as one might have expected considering that they ranked only 18th in the ‘adjusted games lost’-statistic:2018 Patriots adjusted games lostTotal AGLRankOffensive AGLRankDefensive AGLRankTotal AGLRankOffensive AGLRankDefensive AGLRankvia Football OutsidersAcross the board, whether it is total number of adjusted games lost or broken down by offense and defense, we can see that the 2018 Patriots find themselves in the middle of the pack in the league-wide comparison. In fact, only four of the NFL’s twelve playoff teams from last season had worse injury luck than New England — not necessarily what was to be expected considering that the club appeared to be relatively healthy all year long.The problem, however, was the short-term injuries suffered by important contributors and how they get valued in FO’s ‘adjusted games lost’-metric. Rob Gronkowski and Sony Michel missed three games each, Shaq Mason was out for two contests. Trey Flowers and Dont’a Hightower both were absent once, while Rex Burkhead spent half the regular season on injured reserve; Eric Rowe and Jeremy Hill almost the entire year.In 2017 http://www.patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-troy-niklas-jersey , for comparison, the Patriots suffered some major long-term blows but still were a bit healthier compared to the rest of the league: New England ranked 14th with a combined 61.3 AGL score. So how come the 2018 team was able to capture the Lombardi Trophy, while the 2017 squad ultimately ran out of gas on the game’s biggest stage? When it comes to injuries it is easy: when it mattered most, the 2018 Patriots had their talent available.Gronkowski, Flowers, and company all played their usual important roles in the Super Bowl — they were healthy and productive. One year prior, the long-term injuries suffered throughout training camp and the season up to this point took their toll on the team in its final game of the season: players like Hightower, Edelman and slot cornerback Jonathan Jones would likely have seen considerable snaps but were unable to suit up.So while the Patriots as a whole were not as comparatively healthy in 2018 as they were the year prior, they still were better off. The NFL has formally announced Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon‘s conditional reinstatement from suspension.Gordon was suspended indefinitely last December and the league’s announcement says he will be allowed to rejoin the Patriots for meetings and conditioning work on Sunday. It goes on to say that he can take part in other activities Ja'Whaun Bentley Jersey , including practice, “subject to appropriate progress on clinical care and other arrangements.”Gordon will also be allowed to attend, but not play, in the Patriots’ preseason game against the Panthers on August 22.“We are all rooting for Josh to succeed, both personally and professionally,” Goodell said in a statement. “Everyone shares in that hope and will continue to support him to every extent possible. But as Josh acknowledged, ultimately his success is up to him.”Gordon has struggled to make the most of other opportunities to return to the NFL. The Patriots believe they can help him avoid further issues and we’ll begin to find out once Gordon reports to work this weekend.
