Was Brandon Spikes punished for showing up late? Agent releases a statement
Brandon Spikes did not want to go on the injured reserve. A matter of fact, he had been playing at a very high level the past several games. There were reports going around that the Patriots may have put him on the I/R as punishment for showing up late to meetings. That could be the case because now Spikes Agent released a statement.
Now, Spikes’ representatives have released a statement insisting the injured reserve designation “was not a mutual decision.”
“Brandon had every intention to keep playing throughout the playoffs, despite the pain he was experiencing throughout the season,” the statement said. “We never had a single conversation with the Patriots in which they threatened to release him if he didn’t accept the injured reserve designation.”
