Law on Holmes' injury: 'He put a little extra on it'

We aren't here to question anybody's toughness.

OK, maybe a little.

No, but seriously, when Santonio Holmes went down last week, it appeared to be a serious injury. Turns out, it was -- not career threatening or anything, but he'll be out for the season with a lisfranc injury (foot).

But even so, how about Holmes' reaction? Giving up the ball after the catch allowing the 49ers to return it for a TD? Taking the cart off the field and out of the stadium?

Holmes isn't the only one to suffer that injury. Former Patriots cornerback Ty Law did the same thing years back . . . except he didn't need a cart to bring him in.

In fact, he refused one. He wanted to keep that tough guy image.

Let him explain in the video.

Giardi: Garoppolo 'still in pain,' does not have full mobility in shoulder

Giardi: Garoppolo 'still in pain,' does not have full mobility in shoulder

The Patriots had both Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett on the field for Tuesday's practice.

While many are hopeful that Garoppolo will be ready to go on Sunday, it’s definitely not a given at this point.

According to CSN’s Mike Giardi, Garoppolo is “still in pain and does not yet have full mobility in his throwing shoulder”

Tom E. Curran had better news about Jacoby Brissett’s thumb. The rookie quarterback was in the Patriots locker room locker room Tuesday morning without splint, tape or cast on his thumb. 

When he asked Brissett if he's feeling "tip-top," he answered, "Oh yeah."
