The Patriots won a crucial game on Sunday night, but their beleaguered secondary took another massive hit.
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.
