Jabaal Sheard Wants To ‘Focus On The Jets’ Rather Than Comment On Playing Time


Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but a New England Patriots player elected not to comment this week on his status for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.

Defensive end Jabaal Sheard was a mysterious healthy scratch in Week 11 and didn’t even travel to San Francisco, where the Patriots beat the 49ers 30-17. But when he was asked Friday about his playing time, Sheard simply reiterated a few variations of needing to “focus on the Jets.”

Hear what Sheard had to say — or didn’t have to say — in the video from “NESN Sports Today,” presented by People’s United Bank, above.
