It's unclear how soon Robby Anderson will be able to return from his latest injury, which was listed as an ankle issue. Anderson's durability has been a concern since he arrived in New York, not because of any injuries he's had in the past, but simply because he has such a wiry frame.
Six games into the season, Anderson is just three yards behind Jermaine Kearse for the team lead in receiving yards, but averaging just under 50 yards per game. Right now, Anderson's catch rate is below 50 percent, although that's partly because they throw more low-percentage downfield balls to him than anyone else. He leads the team with five plays of over 20 yards, though.
In Sunday's game, Anderson was covered by pro bowl cornerback Malcolm Butler most of the time -- a sure sign that the Patriots recognized him as a threat. He once again had a couple of near-misses on potential big plays that would have turned a solid display into a big game. Hopefully missing time this week isn't going to set him back too much because it feels like Anderson might be on the brink of a breakout performance -- and he had his biggest game of the year so far against Miami.
