Bill Belichick: ‘Less likely now’ that Armond Armstead will be able to contribute in 2013

11.11.13 at 2:57 pm ET

It appears that with each passing day, it’s less and less likely defensive lineman Armond Armstead will be able to contribute to the Patriots in 2013.

Speaking on a conference call with reporters Monday, coach Bill Belichick indicated that New England is “running out of time,” when it comes to Armstead’s situation.

“We’€™ll keep going but as you said, we’€™re running out of time,” Belichick said when quizzed about the possibility of Armstead being ready to go. “I’€™d say that looks less likely now with each day that goes by.”

Armstead, a former CFL star who was acquired this offseason by the Patriots, underwent surgery for an infection prior to the start of training camp, and was placed on the reserve/NFI list as a result. Teams have until the conclusion of Week 11 of the season for players on reserve lists to begin practicing, which is this week.
