Over the weekend, a report surfaced via the Herald that Patriots tackle-converted-to-guard Nick Kaczur would miss the 2010 season after undergoing back surgery. On Monday, coach Bill Belichick address Kaczur's future as only he can:
"I don't think he'll be available in the immediate future, but we'll see how that goes," Belichick said. "I'm not sure exactly how long that will or won't be."
Kaczur, expected to play in place of guard Logan Mankins, has not practiced since injuring his back in practice on Jul. 30.
