Patriots took two planes to Houston, kept ill players separate from others

The illness that swept through the Patriots this week caused a lot of absences from practice and it led the team to make a change to their travel plans.

Rather than the usual approach of having the entire traveling party take one plane to Houston, Field Yates of ESPN reports that the team split up into two planes. The ill players took one plane in order to avoid any chance of infecting the others ahead of Sunday night.

The Patriots listed nine players as questionable because of illness. Linebackers Jamie Collins, Dont'a Hightower and Ryan Van Noy are all in that group along with left tackle Isaiah Wynn and right tackle Marcus Cannon. Cornerback Joejuan Williams, safety Patrick Chung, offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor and cornerback Stephon Gilmore round out the group.

Smart move by BB.

SP should learn from this. Our loss to the FailClowns may have been due to sick players on the OL, which was under-reported. Armstead was reported. But there was scuttlebutt that the entire OL was ill with the flu.
