From his ESPNBoston chat today:
Mike, we've heard nothing on Brandon Tate's injury that sent him
to IR. Do you think the injury was relatively minor, and that
he'll be ready to go for a full offseason? Have you seen him
around the facilities? And do you think the coaches saw enough to
know if he can be a viable receiver in this offense next year?
I don't think it's minor, Brian, as it's my belief that is a
ligament tear. When I say it's my belief, I think it's important
to point out that I have not reported that because I don't have
it from a close enough source to go with it. I haven't seen him
around the facilities. My feeling is that he'll be in the WR mix
