--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

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

Philadelphia and would only report that his foot was swollen. Patriots players
are generally forbidden from discussing injuries.
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.
