Nate Solder: ‘I’ll have to see what happened on film’

FOXBORO — Nate Solder said after Wednesday’s practice he didn’t know what happened on the play where he collapsed onto Tom Brady, forcing the quarterback to leave the session prematurely with some sort of left knee or leg injury.
The Patriots left tackle, who was apparently blocked into Brady by Tampa Bay defensive end Adrian Clayborn, said he’ll have to take a look at the film before he makes any sort of declarative statement on what happened on the play.
“I don’t know what happened. I’ll have to see what happened on film,” he told reporters after Wednesday’s practice session. “There were a few different things that happened, so I’ll have to see it.
“I’ll have to see exactly what happened,” he added. “That’s a tough question to answer right now.”
Solder, who had been having a pretty good training camp, drew positive reviews from Clayborn, who said the Colorado product is “a very good left tackle.” Entering his third season with New England, the 25-year-old Solder has started 29 of a possible 32 regular season games over the course of his professional career.
“We’re always working to protect and everything, so … you know, I’ll have to see what happened on film,” he said. “I screwed some things up here and there, and we’ll work to improve it.”
