There was of course much more focus and pomp on the return of Tom Brady to the starting roster following the four-week suspension which both had to serve.

However, in Ninkovich’s case the end of Do Your Job applied to his domestic life as he returned to his duties at defensive end and a core of the Patriots leadership has allowed him to work on disposing of offensive players instead of adding to his stats of disposing of approximately 240-300 diapers during the four-week he was out.

While he only recorded a single tackle against the Browns in the Patriots dominate win, his impact in applying pressure and sealing the edge certainly attributed to the win.  We can also be assured that while Ninkovich’s statistics for tackles will not approach his diapers disposed of numbers there will be many more to come before the end of the season.
