Patriots left tackle Matt Light suffered a dislocated kneecap in the Oct. 11 loss to the Denver Broncos, an injury he says also “got a little bit of the MCL.”
Speaking with ESPN’s “Mike & Mike” on Tuesday morning, the veteran offensive lineman revealed some information on the injury that kept him out of the lineup for five games, saying: “It does sound a little awful, but you take a little time, after you fire everything back up. You have little wizards that work on you, and you’re in the training room every day. And you get back out there.”
Light, who just complete his ninth season with the Patriots, also talked about some of the changes that need to take place if the franchise is to return to elite status.
“We know we have good guys, quality players,” Light said. “But we have to be a more physical team, a mentally tougher team. We have to be guys that act like we’ve been there and done it before.”
In addition, he shared what it was like in the locker room in the wake of the shocking playoff defeat at the hands of the Ravens.
“As players, we all talked about it after the game,” he said. “We were in the locker room and there were a lot of guys hanging their head, and it’s a tough situation.”
