Patriots left guard Joe Thuney is dealing with a foot injury that will require surgery.

Mike Reiss of ESPN reports that Thuney has been limited in his participation in offseason work because of the foot injury, and is preparing to have surgery.

The plan is for Thuney to miss Organized Team Activities but be ready in time for the start of the regular season.

The Patriots chose Thuney in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft and he has started all 32 regular-season games and all six postseason games for New England since they drafted him.

    To quote 85, child please.

    Pats are a fantastic squad and have draft capital out of their butt not to mention they are a long way from being a horrible team.
    On the other hand, the Jets are a long long way off being a reasonable team and who knows if Darnold is more a Manning or a Sanchez.

    Makes you wonder why they wait so long for the inevitable surgery.

    How do you know he waited an unusually long time? According to Reiss it was a minor non-urgent op, not expected to be problematic for the season ahead but because of its timing means he had to go easy on it and will miss some offseason work. There’s nothing to see here except your hate.

  5. Don’t really remember what it was like to worry about during the offseason.

    It’s been so long since I have felt dread at the approach of a season.

    It’s been great to be a Pats fans for the last 17 years. Especially after so many years of being down and up

    If there were such a thing as karma, you would think it would catch up faster than 17 years.

  7. If there is such a thing as Karma, Roger Goodell and the jealous, lying legion of haters have a lot more to worry about than the Patriots.

  8. I love this Thuney kid. This stud gets drafted in the third round, gets plugged in on day one, and never misses a game. Never misses a super bowl either. Get well soon Joe. Character. Work ethic. Smarts. Those characteristics aren’t just important for QB’s. You rarely go wrong when you draft a guy with all that. Of course, those things can’t be measured with an instrument, so if you’re smart, you can take advantage of the rest of the league.

    Tom Brady fumbled away his last chance at a superbowl win.

    Brady has been to 8 Awesome Super Bowls. Win some lose some.

    Let’s see who goes to the next one….I am not worried. How about you?

  10. How does someone connect Joe Thuney needing foot surgery all the way to Sam Darnold’s instant dominance of the Patriots?

    Oh, I forgot—the explanation is always “karma”.

    Maybe this guy can take the “system QB” theory guy out for coffee and compare notes…

    Because we have never heard this before.

    But IF he never wins another one it would suck to retire with only 5.

    There is such a thing as karma (this isn’t it) and it tends to come when it wants to, not when you want it to. As always pride goeth before the fall, and I am confident the hubris and arrogance of Pats Nation will come back to haunt it. It just isn’t going to be because a LG has surgery. SMH.

    The irony here is someone that believes in kharma talking like that.

    A guard with a foot injury is the beginning of the end?

    How did the last USC Quarterback work out for the Jets?

  15. .
    The Patriots have an unusual amount of depth and versatility along the offensive line. It will be interesting to see how Dante Scarnecchia arranges the puzzle pieces. Since they can’t keep everyone, teams looking for help on the Oline would be wise to contact the Patriots towards the end of camp.

    He is Christian Hackenberg 2.0

  17. How come none of the articles on the Internet say what type of surgery it is, or what type of injury it’s going to resolve? Seems like an important detail to know before you can automatically assume that he’ll be back at full speed in 120 days.

    Actually since Patriot nation suffered through decades of beatdowns as the doormat everyone wiped their feet on maybe its the last 17 years that was the kharma coming around. So its already happened.

    Of course, this theory suggests that Cleveland dynasty is going to be epic.

  19. Oh, karma exists. Since Deflategate, the Patriots have three Super Bowl appearances and two new rings. Both wins involved the then biggest comebacks in SB history, and Brady has also set multiple new SB records for passing categories as well as most wins. On the other side of the ledger, the teams involved (Colts, Ravens) have fallen into mediocrity or worse, while their principal employees who fabricated the allegations have all been fired. At the league level, the core has likewise been purged to the point that Mike Kensil was reassigned to “international relations” — namely an Alaskan radar tower. And of course Goodell is booed in public everywhere he goes, and presumably hissed at by black cats as he walks to his car every morning.

    Karma stinks. I wonder what the Bills did that was so bad that Karma has kicked their butts for so long…..

  21. So, this makes it even more likely Wynn is going to get work at LG. He just doesn’t look like a Tackle to me.

    I bet Wynn moves to RT permanently after 2018 when Cannon walks, which likely means Brown and Garcia will get a lot of work at LT?

  22. “There’s nothing to see here except your hate.”

    Huh? I just wondered why he didn’t get it done sooner?

  23. “If there were such a thing as karma, you would think it would catch up faster than 17 years.”

    Or, you know, all the fabricated cheating accusations are just that, and the Pats have good karma for working as harder as any other NFL team and harder than almost any other team.

  24. The Patriots are the team that has Added a solid method to building the team over the last ten years and that is trading camp and in season trades. The Pats are not finished building the 2028-19 team
    Yet.

    I’ve had allot of surgery. Its hell. What fans dont notice is that those players who have surgery (vs natural healing) when they really dont otherwise have to – do it for “speed” to get back on the field faster. But its MUCH more traumatic to endure the surgery/rehab and it absolutely shortens your career.

  26. I love the predictions that “this will be the year” that Pats lose the division – because by saying it every year, eventually you will be correct and can proudly stammer on about how you picked it…yup, you were correct once in 20+ years, way to go slugger.

    The Pats will eventually lose their dominance over the league, it happens to every dynasty, but as a fan I’m more than happy with the last 20 years of play.

    Someone must be new to football.

  28. A foot injury for a 300 pound man that requires surgery to fix is no joke. That means no lifting or running for a while, and a likely weight gain. He may not be in game shape until well into the season. That means maybe Wynn gets to play guard in his place, unless Crosten beats him out. I don’t think this dominoes into the Tackle spots if Wynn plays guard in place of Thuney, unless Garcia is not ready to go. LaWaddle/Garcia and Cannon/Brown at Tackle may be enough. If Garcia isn’t ready, maybe Wynn has to play some Tackle which may leave the middle of the line a bit vulnerable to teams that can collapse the pocket in front of Brady. I must admit though, I am mildly concerned about losing Solder.

  29. “What I really want to see is Pats fans when Tommy does retire or goes down.”

    You’re making the flawed assumption that Belichick won’t have another QB ready to go. Or that the rest of the roster will suddenly be valueless once Brady is gone.

    I suspect the best coach/GM/planner in NFL history won’t reward your anticipation very well.
