Matthew Judon appears impressed with Bailey Zappe in Instagram video
Despite the alleged possibility of returning to the field this season after suffering a torn bicep injury against the Cowboys early this season, Matthew Judon continues to watch his team from the comfort of his home and appeared to enjoy the Patriots' recent win over the Steelers on Thursday night.
The franchise record-breaking linebacker posted a video to his Instagram during the matchup, showing his enthusiastic support for Bailey Zappe, who had a memorable first-half performance against a tough defensive front in Pittsburgh.
Although some fans weren't so thrilled with the win potentially impacting their standing in the draft, Judon's excitement was felt by many others who were happy to see the offense show some life after looking beyond tired during their five-game losing streak.
Whether his show of support for Zappe means anything beyond just applauding a teammate performing well on a short week is unknown. Some may believe it's an indication of how he feels about Mac Jones, but this should just be taken for what it is: acknowledging a good performance by a young quarterback under interesting circumstances and taking advantage of his opportunity.
