Patriots receiver Tyquan Thornton will miss the start of his rookie season.

Thornton suffered a collarbone injury last night that will cause him to miss some games, but not the entire season, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The Patriots took Thornton out of Baylor in the second round of the 2022 NFL draft, and he was one of the Patriots’ few offensive bright spots in training camp, and caught a touchdown pass in New England’s first preseason game. He’ll be missed when he’s out.

With Thornton out, the Patriots will hope that DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne, Jakobi Meyers and Nelson Agholor can give them a deep group of receivers for quarterback Mac Jones.

  1. Sorry the kid got hurt. He would have been awesome!

  2. That’s just great. The one guy they’ve been talking up so much in camp is already hurt. I’m keeping my expectations low for the Pats,and not just because of this. I mean overall. We had a great 20 years,and now we’re back to reality.

  3. Malcolm Mitchell caught 6 passes for 65 yards in the last 20 minutes of a Super Bowl, so no matter his career-ending injuries after that, he had a great start to his rookie year and would’ve been a fixture on the Patriots, a David Givens type.

  4. This is the time when certain Pats’ fans yell, BUST! As if injury and talent have anything to do with each other. I hope the young man heals quickly, Mac will need all the help he can get.

  5. that’s was his question mark can he stay healthy playing with the big boys and sadly the early answer is no.

  6. If you looked at him, it was inevitable. Built like an undernourished high school freshman after a growth spurt. 6’3″ 180 pounds. The only way for him not to get hurt was not to play. But fast and quick! Another wasted WR draft pick.

  7. That’s ok. The most expensive group of pass catchers is in New England. $70million cap hit. Next highest is $52 million.

    BB would never spend that kind of money unless he knew what he was doing.

  8. It’s terrible to see that happen to any player regardless of the team. Get well soon.

    That said, rest of the WRs are scrubs, not unlike the rest of the team and their coaches.

  9. Lots of miserable people on here. Guy gets hurt and you post nasty comments.

    Karma , they say, is a bitch.

  10. I actually feel this is a bad break (no pun) because, call me crazy, the scheme will be easier to pick up than the Erdhart-Perkins Unicorn they were previously running and might be better for the development of a a rookie wide receiver?

    The comment I posted was copied and pasted from other teams forums. But we don’t talk about that I guess.
