Colvin out for the season

Patriots star linebacker Rosevelt Colvin, the team's prized free agent signing in an offseason spent upgrading the defense, will miss the rest of the season.

Colvin underwent surgery on Friday to repair a fractured left hip and is expected to make a full recovery. The team placed Colvin on injured reserve Friday, which means he is out for the remainder of the season.

It's a big blow to a defense that already lost safety Lawyer Milloy and linebacker Ted Johnson (broken foot). Colvin was the centerpiece of the team's revamped 3-4 front and was to be the featured pass rusher on the defense.

Willie McGinest will step into his role, but the Patriots could also play more 4-3 defense than initially planned as well.

true...even though you're a divisional rival, good luck to you guys...this is so unfortunate, but if anyone can pull you guys through it, it's Billy B.

New Pats LB Rosie Colvin is gone for the year after surgery on his broken left hip. That sucks for him. It's a huge shot to the Pats D, but oh well, I'm not a Pats fan.

Oh wow, he is out for the year eh? I suppose you could have clarified that with a link or blurb in your original post though so I wasn't held in suspense for the three seconds it took for me to scroll down. :lol:

Hip injuries seem to hurt me every time I read about them. Maybe it is because I saw my dad struggle through both of his hips being replaced but geez that sounds painful. Same with broken Femurs...ouch.
