  Patriots | Rob Ninkovich expected to retire    Sun Jul 30, 09:24 AM

New England Patriots DE Rob Ninkovich is expected to announce his retirement Sunday, July 30, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: The Patriots dealt for Kony Ealy in the offseason and drafted Derek Rivers. They should be fine at defensive end and outside linebacker. Ninkovich had an outstanding career with the team after between the Saints and Dolphins during his first three years in the league.

  Patriots | Rob Ninkovich suspended    Fri Sep 2, 03:05 PM

New England Patriots DE Rob Ninkovich said he has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for testing positive for a banned substance.

Footballguys view: Well, as he is already out for the first month due to an injury, this is more damaging to his pride and reputation than anything else. And the Patriots already needed to fill his role short-term, so this is really a minimal impact.

  Patriots | Rob Ninkovich out at least a month    Tue Aug 9, 10:47 PM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots DE Rob Ninkovich (triceps) is expected to miss four to six weeks after suffering a torn triceps in practice Tuesday, Aug. 9, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Patriots traded Chandler Jones in the offseason, but they added Chris Long at defensive end. Ninkovich has been a core performer and producer in this defense for a while, so his absence will be felt, although Jabaal Sheard is probably the most valuable defensive end in the lineup.

  Patriots | Rob Ninkovich won't be out long    Tue Aug 9, 08:56 PM

New England Patriots DE Rob Ninkovich (triceps) will only be sidelined for a matter of weeks with his torn triceps as opposed to a matter of months. Ninkovich suffered the injury in practice Tuesday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: We're not so optimistic, but only time will tell. The Patriots aren't great at disclosing information on injured players. We'll have to see how Ninkovich is recovering over these next few weeks before getting excited about his availability.

  Patriots | Rob Ninkovich has torn triceps    Tue Aug 9, 06:16 PM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots DE Rob Ninkovich (triceps) has a torn triceps, according to a source. There was no tear on the tendon, however. The injury will not require surgery, and if the rehabilitation process goes well, Ninkovich could return by October.

Footballguys view: We're shocked that Ninkovich isn't out for the rest of the year. The team is going to see if he can come back later in the year. In the meantime, guys like Shea McClellin and Chris Long will get a larger opportunity.

  Patriots | Rob Ninkovich will have MRI    Tue Aug 9, 03:02 PM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots DE Rob Ninkovich (triceps) will undergo an MRI to determine how severe his triceps injury is. Ninkovich suffered the injury in practice Tuesday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: The MRI does draw up a red flag, but it can be precautionary as well. Ninkovich has been one of the most durable players for the Patriots, and this injury--if severe-- would certainly have a large and negative impact on their defense.
