The New England Patriots saw a pair of Flowers suffer injuries on a joint sack, with linebacker Marquis Flowers heading to the tent with a lower leg injury and pass rusher Trey Flowers battling an apparent chest injury. While both Flowers returned to the field, Trey Flowers removed himself from the game and was taken to the locker room for further analysis.

“He came to the sideline, again pointing to his chest area,” CBS’s sideline reporter Evan Washburn said over the broadcast. “He’s currently in the locker room.”

Trey Flowers is the Patriots top pass rusher and his injury greatly affects the New England defensive front. Hopefully this isn’t serious.

Update: The Patriots declare Flowers “questionable to return” with a rib injury.

We’ll provide more on this when available.
