Nathan Horton says he'd be "ready right now" to start camp. The concern isn't that he's partied too hard after winning the Stanley Cup. He was knocked from the finals after sustaining an Aaron Rome headshot in Game 3.
And what better way to prove his health than by driving in a big circle, daring to get dizzy?
A concussion test. That'd probably be a better way.
Wicked Good Sports, M.D. to the rescue.
FOXBORO -- The Patriots took different approaches as the National Anthem played on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. Many, including safety and captain Devin McCourty, took a knee. Others stood and linked arms.
On the opposite sideline, it appeared as though every member of the Texans stood on the sidelines and linked arms.
Those joining McCourty on a knee included Stephon Gilmore, Malcolm Butler, Lawrence Guy, Johnson Bademosi, Alan Branch, Brandon King, Malcom Brown and rookies Deatrich Wise and Adam Butler.
Among those linking arms were Tom Brady, Phillip Dorsett, Cassius Marsh, Matthew Slater, David Harris and Dwayne Allen.
