The Patriots won a crucial game on Sunday night, but their beleaguered secondary took another massive hit.
The team’s best cornerback Devin McCourty hurt his shoulder in the win over the Jets. Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that it’s “believed” McCourty has a grade two shoulder separation.
Dan Roche of WBZ first reported that McCourty had a separated shoulder. Breer believes McCourty could be out 2-3 weeks. Don’t expect the Patriots to confirm much of anything regarding the injury this week.
New England’s defense survived against Mark Sanchez, but they could have trouble with a trip to Philadelphia in a couple of weeks with such an injury-plagued, talent-deprived secondary.
