Ron Brace MRI reveals sprained ankle

Finally some positive news on the injury front for the New England Patriots it appears. A source close to Patriots defensive lineman Ron Brace has told the Boston Herald that after undergoing an MRI yesterday, the ankle injury he sustained in the fourth quarter of New England’s third preseason game against St. Louis on Thursday night is just a sprain.

Brace turned in a strong performance against the Rams (the best showing of his two year career to date) recording seven tackles and one sack in the contest. It appears that Brace will undergo treatment for the ankle sprain this weekend and might only miss a couple of days. Injuries have decimated the Patriots defensive line this preseason forcing Brace to step up into the spotlight. Brace drew comparisons to legendary nose tackle Ted Washington in his career at Boston College, and was selected by the Patriots in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. After an underwhelming rookie season, Brace has every opportunity to make a major impact along the defensive line at both tackle and end this season for the Patriots.
