Mohamed Sanu’s Injury Has Patriots Fans Begging For Antonio Brown Reunion

Imagine thinking back in July: “Mohamed Sanu’s injury is going to make people want Antonio Brown back on the New England Patriots.”

Well, here we are.

Sanu reportedly suffered a high ankle sprain during the Pats’ win over the Philadelphia Eagles, and there’s now a chance that he could miss a couple weeks. Meanwhile, Phillip Dorsett is dealing with a concussion, though there is optimism he’ll be able to play against the Dallas Cowboys. Gunner Olszewski is on IR now, so his season is done.

That leaves Julian Edelman (who was limited in Wednesday’s practice with a shoulder injury), N’Keal Harry, Jakobi Meyers and, technically, Matthew Slater as the Patriots’ other receivers.

Not ideal.

Brown reportedly is optimistic that he’ll be able to return later this season, so when news of Sanu’s injury came out, Patriots fans came out in droves to plead to the team to bring back Brown.

You get the point.

The NFL currently is investigating Brown after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, including rape, were brought against him during his 11-day stint with the Patriots in September. Brown earlier this week also apologized to Patriots owner Robert Kraft for his tweets about him after getting cut.

It still seems really unlikely the Patriots would bring Brown back, but who knows anymore.
