The New England Patriots sent punter Jake Bailey from injured reserve to the reserve/suspended list, dating back to Dec. 31. The reason for the move is lost on him, at least according to his agent.
Doug Hendrickson released a statement on Saturday, claiming that his client is dealing with an “unknown suspension.” Additionally, a grievance against the Patriots has been filed:
While Jake Bailey was on IR, he never missed a single treatment, meeting or practice. He was hoping to come off IR to play last weekend, but Jake was informed he was being suspended these last two games. This comes as a surprise given his full participation during injury reserve. We have filed a grievance to fight this unknown suspension
