FOXBORO -- Bryan Stork missed a handful of practices last week with what was reported to be a concussion.
But the third-year center bristled when asked how his recuperation from that injury was going, saying, “You should probably just check your sources because I feel fine. Getting better every day. I was working with the trainers and they were doing what was in my best interest.”
Stork missed time with concussions each of the past two seasons and also had one in his final season at Florida State.
Science has established a link between traumatic brain injuries and long-term health issues. Football can be a breeding ground for them, something the NFL’s been forced to accept and increasingly deal with over the past decade. More and more players cite concerns about how they’ll function when they’re older when considering how long they’ll play.
Stork, 25, wasn’t up for discussing long-term impacts or the prospective dangers of continuing to play.
“It’s a tough game for tough people and I still have a lot left in me,” he said.
According to The Costa Rica Star, airport police at Juan Santamaria International Airport found two ounces of marijuana inside an iced-tea can alongside several different types of THC based paraphernalia within Duron Harmon's suitcase.
Tonight he issued an apology to the Kraft family, Patriots, and his own family.
Harmon traveled into the country from Fort Lauderdale and was sent back after being briefly detained.
The Patriots organization acknowledged the arrest, “We are aware of the situation involving Duron Harmon Friday night in Costa Rica,” a Patriots spokesman said in a statement to multiple media outlets. “He has since returned to the U.S., and we are seeking to gain more information. At this time, we have no further update.”
Remember when Brandin Cooks rode Rob Gronkowski around like a horse to celebrate a Patriots touchdown back in November?
Well, Gronk doing Gronk things in Miami managed to find about the only person he could ride.
Shaquille O'Neal, at 7-foot-1, gave 6-7 Gronk a ride on his shoulders as they celebrated the debut of "Shaq's Fun House" as part of the three-day Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
So, who won the dance-off?
