Marcus Forston just plugging away on Pats' practice squad

If defensive lineman Marcus Forston is about to get the call up from the practice squad, he sure sounds like a guy who doesn't know it.

 Doing his best Sgt. Schultz ("I know nothing"), the Patriots' practice squad member said he hasn't been informed of the team's plans in the wake of defensive lineman Vince Wilfork's right Achilles tendon injury.

For the time being, Forston said he'll just keep plugging away on the practice squad, which has two defensive linemen -- him and A.J. Francis -- on it”

"(I'm) just looking at everything as a blessing," said Forston. "There's a lot of guys wishing they were in the position I'm in now. Even though it's on the practice squad, I'm still in this position, living in my dream and hopefully getting better and hopefully some changes as far as me getting better and showing the coaches I'm ready to play on Sundays."

 Forston said he has spoken to Wilfork since he went down in Atlanta.

"I've talked to him," said Forston. "(He's) just basically telling me to stay positive and continue to do what I do," said Forston.
