BOSTON (CBS) — Following his 200-yard, four touchdown performance against the Indianapolis Colts in November, Jonas Gray quickly found himself in Bill Belichick’s dog house for being late to practice the following week.
Gray hit the snooze button one too many times following his big game, and was essentially benched because of it.
It looks like he had similar issues on Thursday, though a radio appearance isn’t nearly as important as a mid-season practice for an undrafted player trying to hold onto his spot on the roster.
The Patriots running back was supposed to join 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich on Thursday morning to promote his upcoming comedy show this weekend, but was tardy to that party. He did not end up joining the show.
But that wasn’t the only issue Gray had over the Boston airwaves on Thursday. His interview on WZLX’s Karlson and McKenzie was abruptly cut short after just a few minutes after a line of questioning about him not playing in the Super Bowl.
Late in the 9am hour, Gray’s agent called Toucher & Rich to defend his client about the misunderstanding:
Gray is scheduled to host a comedy show at the Kowloon in Saugus on Saturday night.
