From those wackos at AP:
New England defensive lineman Richard Seymour will not start in Sunday’s AFC title game against the Pittsburgh Steelers because of a left knee injury, though he might play as a substitute.
“We’ll see where he is,” coach Bill Belichick said Friday before the team’s flight to Pittsburgh. “Maybe he can give us some situational play during the game.”
Seymour, one of two Patriots on the All-Pro team, remained on the injury report as questionable, meaning there was a 50 percent chance he would not play.
Belichick wouldn’t specify how much he might use Seymour, who is in the fourth week of a recovery from a medial collateral knee ligament injury that takes between three to six weeks to heal.
