Patriots players also did not vilify the Browns defensive back.
“It’s a tough situation because I have played against T.J. in the past and he is not a dirty player,” said Slater. “He is a clean player. But these guys are taught that you can’t hit high, so you have to hit low and injuries happen. You can’t blame him, just pray for Rob.”
Now it becomes a waiting game to see the extent of the injury, and what it will take to return.
“He is a strong person, both mentally and physically,’ said Mulligan. “So we feel like he can come back from whatever this is.”
