Devin McCourty suffers rib injury

Devin McCourty

Patriots rookie cornerback Devin McCourty continued to build his quiet Defensive Rookie of the Year candidacy, but an injury to his rib could slow him down.

Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com notes that McCourty didn’t play after suffering the injury in the second quarter.  The Patriots didn’t offer a lot of information about the injury after the game.  (Shocker.)

Before he left, McCourty forced a fumble that was returned for a score and had a key pass breakup on third down to end a Bears drive.   It’s hard to overstate how important McCourty now is to the Patriots defense.

There is a huge drop-off from him to the No. 2 cornerback (Kyle Arrington) on the team, much less McCourty’s backup Darius Butler.

    Reiss:

    “McCourty told the Boston Herald that was he was ‘OK’ as he walked out of the locker room Sunday night, while the Boston Globe quoted McCourty as saying ‘I’m all right.’”

    McCourty Island is rock-n-rollin while the rest of the archipelago is all quiet.

    Good player, but definitely not in the same class as Suh!! But dont they do AFC and NFC rookies of the year? If so he’ll win it for the AFC, no question
