The Day After; New England

News and notes on the New England Patriots.

--QB Tom Brady suffered a right elbow injury during, but remained in the game. During his Monday radio obligation on WEEI in Boston, Brady said that it wasn't serious and shouldn't keep him out of Sunday's game against the Jets.
   --LB Rosevelt Colvin's status for this week is unknown. He injured his left hip while recovering a fumble vs. the Eagles and left the stadium on crutches.
   --Coach Bill Belichick was asked to respond to ESPN analyst Tom Jackson's Sunday morning comment in which he said the Patriots "hate" their head coach. "I wouldn't dignify those comments with a response," Belichick said.
   --CB Eugene Wilson started at safety in Philly, but the move is not necessarily permanent. Belichick said he used a cornerback in that spot because the Eagles use so many multi-receiver sets and have a Pro Bowl pass catching tight end as well. He basically said it was more of a game plan move. "We'll put whatever group out there on a weekly basis that we think will work against the particular match-up." Wilson played some safety as well as corner in the game, sometimes covering the slot receiver and other times covering the outside receiver.
   --C Dan Koppen earned some praise after his first career start in place of Damien Woody. "Dan did some good things," Belichick said. "It was a respectable performance against some pretty good players.
   --RB Kevin Faulk lead the Patriots in rushing yards (85), receiving yards (84) and kickoff return yards (99) as he has picked up where he left following a productive second half of 2002.
   --S Aric Morris was hobbling around the locker room following the win over Philadelphia and would only report that his foot was swollen. Patriots players are generally forbidden from discussing injuries.
   --P Ken Walter's inconsistencies continue. While he hit punts of 52 and 51 yards in Philly, he also shanked a 26- and 29-yarder. He dropped a snap on a field goal try as well. He is likely auditioning for a job on every kick.
