Patriots RB Eric Kettani Ordered Back To Navy

RB Eric Kettani is a member of the New England Patriots practice squad. But he's not just any member of the practice squad, he's one with two years in the Naval reserve as an active military member. 

That made him a feel-good story in Patriots camp all season. However, there's a flip side to being in the reserve. Kettani is being called back in to service immediately.

The Navy says it’s a time of war, though Kettani had appealed and requested leave for the past two weeks. That request has been denied...

Playing for the Patriots was a dream for Kettani but based on his feelings here, it sounds like serving in the Navy is an honor.
