The Patriots suffered a big blow Thursday night.
During their preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots’ offensive lineman, Isaiah Wynn, tore his achilles and will now miss the entire season.
Wynn suffered the injury on his first snap and was carted to the locker room after being examined by trainers on the sideline. The rookie was competing for a starting spot on New England’s offensive line and was lined up at right tackle when his Achilles gave out.
The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, but it is telling that he needed to be carted to the locker room.
The Patriots top three picks have all been sidelined for some of the summer. Running back Sony Michel (knee) and defensive back Duke Dawson (unknown) missed Thursday’s preseason win over the Eagles.
The Patriots selected Wynn with the 23rd overall pick in the 2018 draft.
